IBS Sano - Low FODMAP Recipes - Logo Background Gluten Free and Low FODMAP Recipe - Lemon Cookies


200g soft lactose free butter

140g caster sugar

1 egg yolk

1 tsp vanilla extract

zest 2 lemons, juice 1

280g gluten free plain flour, plus a little extra for rolling

½ jar low FODMAP lemon curd (click here)

140g icing sugar, sifted


Stir together the lactose free butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla and zest from 1 lemon using a wooden spoon.

Stir in the gluten free flour – you might need to get your hands in at the end.

Tip onto a (gluten free) floured surface, bring together into a smooth dough, then roll out, half at a time, and stamp out 5-6cm rounds.

Keep re-rolling trimmings, you should get about 40 biscuits.

Arrange on trays lined with baking parchment, cover with cling film and chill for 30 mins.

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Bake the biscuits for 8-12 mins until pale golden, then cool.

Once cool, spread half the biscuits with a little lemon curd and top with a second biscuit.

Arrange the biscuits on wire racks over trays.

Mix enough lemon juice into the icing sugar to give a runny consistency, then drizzle over the biscuits.

Scatter over a bit more lemon zest and leave to set.
