  • 100g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 80g icing sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 250g white chocolate cut in small pieces
  • 1 lemon (just the zest)


    1. Prehead the oven to 180C/ fan 160C/ gas 4
    2. Make sure the butter is softened. Cut in cubes and put it in a large bowl along with the sugar.
    3. Put an electric whisk on the lowest setting and break the butter up into the sugar. Increase the whisk's speed and mix for about 1 minute until you have a light and creamy mixture.
    4. Add the eggs, one at a time. Make sure they are mixed well.
    5. Add the baking powder and flour and mix gently with your hands until everything is mixed well.
    6. Add the zest of the lemon and the pieces of white chocolate.
    7. Put a grease proof paper in a baking tray. Make small balls out of the dough and press them gently on the tray until they are about 0.5cm tall.
    8. Leave some space between them on the tray so they don't stick together.
    9. Bake for 12 minutes then remove from the oven and let them cool down.
    10. Enjoy!
