How to make soft lemon biscuits

granulated and salt, then add the egg, the grated zest of two lemons and the juice of half a lemon,
mix, and finally add the sifted flour and baking powder. You will have obtained a soft and smooth dough. Wrap it in cling film and let it cool in the fridge for 1 hour. Prepare two bowls: one containing powdered sugar and the other granulated sugar.
Prepare the biscuits by taking a little dough to form balls of about 16-18 gr, pass them first in the granulated sugar and then in the icing sugar. Cover a baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper and place the balls on the baking sheet.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 12 minutes, until they are lightly browned underneath. The cracks on the surface are normal, indeed that is the peculiarity.
Let it cool and serve yours soft lemon biscuits. Enjoy your meal!
