Lemony Shortbread Buscuits (Recipe)

2 2/3 level cups of plain flour
1 cup of room temp unsalted butter (I reckon this is about 3/4 of a 250g pack)
1 large lemon
pinch of salt
2/3 cup of icing sugar.

Cream the sugar and butter and salt together.  Then add the flour and zest of the lemon and combine, if a bit too dry use the juice from the lemon to bind.

Either pat into a tin at about 1/2 cm thickness, or roll out to said thickness and use cutters to make shortbread buscuits.

My oven is fierce, so I had it set at 160 and these cooked in 8mins.  For a normal oven probably about 180 for a similar time.
