Melting moments are an all-time favourite biscuits for their sweet taste and crumbly texture, but we love this recipe as it has the tang of lemon! These melt-in-your-mouth delicious baked treats are airy, light and buttery. Melting moments are perfect for taking to a picnic or party as they are crowd-pleasers but also so easy to make!
