A perfect complement to coffee or tea, these biscuits are crumbly and fragrant. Deliciously appealing to taste and to sight.
In a bowl, place the flour and baking powder in the center with the sugar, the butter cut into small pieces, the grated rind of a lemon and the egg.
Start to work the ingredients from the center, gradually incorporating all the flour, then add the juice of half a lemon and limoncello.
Work the dough until it forms a ball that you will put in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes.
Take now the dough and form balls as large as a nut that you will roll in a saucer in which you have put some granulated sugar.
Place the limoncello biscuits so obtained on a baking tray covered with parchment paper, distancing well from each other and bake in a preheated oven at 170 °
Bake the biscuits for about 10 minutes or until they are just golden.
Allow to cool and then serve with a nice glass of iced limoncello.
