Lemon Curd Biscuits

I really loved how these Lemon Curd Biscuits turned out, I have seen biscuits with lemon curd on the top but instead of placing it on top I decided to add it into the biscuit mixture instead.  I was super happy with the outcome!

You can make these biscuit larger or smaller if you wish to, just adjust the cooking time as needed.  This recipe was adapted from Dan Lepard’s book Short and Sweet, I sometimes just want some ingredients that I can mix together and at the end you have some yummy biscuits.  In the original recipe, which i’m sure taste wonderful, he has a shortbread cookie on the bottom with the lemon curd mixture on top…but easy peasy biscuits were needed 🙂

Have a great weekend xx
