TWD - Every-Way Shortbread Fans - The Lemon Poppyseed Version

Life handed me lemons, so I made lemonade, lemon cake, lemon drops, and I even used the rinds to make lemon art. So, the joke is on you, life, haha! (Emilyann Allen)

This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe continues last week’s lemon theme. It is Every-Way Shortbread Fans - the Lemon Poppyseed Version.

These delicious biscuits are easy to whip up, and are baked in a round cake tin to help them get and keep their shape.

The lemon poppyseed version involves rubbing lemon zest into sugar, and poppyseeds being folded through the dough.

A fork is used to mark out the shortbread sections and decorate the edges of the biscuits. The biscuits are cut when still warm after baking.

To finish, a lemon icing is drizzled over the biscuits - not necessary but pretty.

Love your lemon plate and the quote, so true. I like my orange version too and would be willing to make more of her versions, so easy in one pan.
