Lemon Polenta Biscuits

I’m a polenta fan. I like that it can be used in many ways from a thick stodge that you’ve spent hours stirring to sliced and grilled to being combined with flour in cakes and bakes. I’ve made a lemon polenta cake before and had a hankering for biscuits the other day so instead of zipping to the nearest shop for crunch creams I made these biscuits. It’s much more satisfying to eat what you have made plus you know what’s in it!

What you need:

50g butter, cut into cubes

100g polenta

100g plain white flour

50g soft light brown sugar

75ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

grated rind of one lemon

What you need to do:

1. Heat the oven to 170C.

2. Blend the butter and sugar in a bowl then add the flour and polenta and mix well.

3. Add the lemon juice and grated rind and mix well.

4. Take little balls of the dough, flatten them into rounds and place on a buttered, or lined with baking paper, baking tray.

5. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Enjoyed best at midnight in pyjamas and fluffy slippers with a hot toddy!
