Edible Gifts: Lemon Biscuits with Honey


Looking for a gift option made with love? These lemon biscuits are perfeclty delicious!



  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 120g butter, softened iced-lemon-chewies.jpg
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 egg
  • clear honey

For the icing

  • 150g icing sugar
  • tbsp lemon juice


Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl and set aside.

Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the lemon zest and mix to incorporate.

In a separate bowl, crack in the egg and add the honey. Stir together until well mixed, and then add to the butter mixture gradually until combined.

Add the flour mixture a bit at a time, fully mixing each batch in before adding the next. Once you have a smooth batter scoop teaspoons of the mixture onto lightly greased baking sheets about 2 inches apart and gently press down.

Bake for 10-12 mins, until the cookies are set and golden. Leave to cool for a few minutes then transfer with a pie slice to a cooling rack.

To make the icing put the icing sugar in a bowl and mix the lemon juice in to form a thick glaze. If it’s not runny enough add tiny amounts of water until you get the right consistency. If it goes too far just add more icing sugar.

You can either drizzle the icing over with a spoon, or fill a disposable icing bag with it, snip off the end and create a more uniformed look. Leave to set and then package.
