Cream 100g/ 1/3cup butter with 100g/ 1/2 cup sugar and lemon zest, which we didn’t use, until pale and fluffy. Add 1 egg and beat. Add 200g/ 1 1/2 cups plain/ all-purpose flour and 50g/ 1/4 cup currants and mix until combined.
It says to line baking trays with parchment paper, but we didn’t and they were fine.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 5mm thickness. Cut out using a 6.5 cm cutter. Knead leftovers together, roll out and cut. Place on baking trays. Sprinkle with sugar and bake at 180C/350F for 10-12 minutes and starting to brown. The recipe says you should have 30 biscuits. We only had 18. I suspect they should be thinner or smaller, but we liked them just the way they are.
