  • 1/2 lb (225 grams) butter
  • 1/4 lb (115 grams) powder sugar (castor sugar)
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 lb (340 grams) flour
  • 2 oz (55 grams) cornstarch


Pre-heat oven to 350F (175C).

Mix all ingredients.

Using a pastry bag with a star tip pipe cookies in the shape of an “S” onto a sheet pan covered with pan liner (parchment paper).

Bake approximately 10 minutes.


Melt 1/2 pound (225 grams) of good quality chocolate and half coat the cookies by dipping when cool. If you do this to half of the cookies it appears that you made separate batches. I found the chocolate coated cookies no good for dunking!
