I'm having a Moment!

I bought a lemon last week thinking i would need it at some point and while sitting down watching TV i was hit with a sudden urge for sugar (Don't worry this happens to me alot!)
So i remembered making these biscuits from the Bundaberg Sugar web site and how easy they were and got to work!
They are a great little gift, I once gave these as part of a secret santa gift at work, i put them inside a 'Yummy Mummy' mug...very appropriate i felt :)
They are also great as a little treat if you are having a sweet tooth craving moment!
They are a soft and sort of a smooth textured biscuit with the filling having a little bit of a zing from the lemon zest.
