Lemon and Thyme Biscuits

My dad surprised me with a freshly picked bag of lemons the other day. Our tree had to be removed last summer and he's sharing his crop with us until our new tree grows......awww, he's adorable :)
His lemons are plump and juicy and perfect for my morning ritual of warm water and lemon juice but I also saved one to make a batch of  Lemon and Thyme Biscuits:
These biscuits are amazing; they are soft and buttery with a powerful punch of lemon and complimented with the earthy flavour of fresh thyme. Lemon and thyme are a classic flavour combination and in a biscuit, they are divine. A plate of these disappears fast in our house. Everyone loves them because they're full of flavour and they have that subtle hint of sweetness.
I love this recipe because its quick and easy and its all done in the Kitchenaid so the clean up is minimal. The dough is silky soft and easy to work with and there's no need for chilling or resting, just mix, roll, cut, sprinkle with some sugar and bake.
My recipe makes around 15 biscuits and they store well in an airtight container and are apparently great for freezing, so my girlfriend tells me. So make a huge batch if you like, to use up any excess lemons you may have in the fruit bowl.
Did you know that just thinking about a lemon can cause your salivary glands to activate? Your checking aren't you?? I love the sharp, tangy taste lemon leaves in your mouth. Its so refreshing and these biscuits will keep your mouth zinging for ages :)
These Lemon and Thyme Biscuits are perfect to enjoy any time of the day and they are a wonderful addition to the picnic basket so you can cleanse your palette as you feed your soul in the great outdoors.
I use fresh thyme in my biscuits but you can substitute it with dried thyme if that's what you have on hand. Reduce your quantity though, as dried thyme is more concentrated and potent. I'd suggest about a teaspoon would be ample.
So if I've made you salivate and you want to try these Lemon and Thyme Biscuits, you can download my recipe HERE or right click on the picture below and save it to your computer for later:
I hope you enjoy these biscuits as much as we do. I'm off to raid dads lemon tree again because one batch of these biscuits, is never enough :)
Happy baking :)
