French tea cookies, butter, eggs, richness, what more can one say about these Lille style biscuits. They are ideal for a midday tea with friends and have made me and my crowd company through our weekly game of Dixit. Being a bit on the sweet side they certainly go hand in hand with a cup of bitter coffee.
I also made the icing a bit more zesty by adding more lemon juice, which I think balances well with their buttery sweet flavor. The recipe for these is available here.
