Soon our school will be holding it’s annual school disco again. Flicking through my archive of short stories, I was reminded of this post. That little almost convulsing dancing boy I still see in the playground from time to time. He’s bigger now and probably doesn’t even remember that intense dance-off he once did. I did though, and it still gave me a chuckle just reading about it.
In honour of school disco’s and the joy of uninhibited dancing, I made a few more of those dancing star biscuits.
lemon vanilla stars
200g softened butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp lemon rind
225g plain flour
squeeze of half a lemon
Cream butter and sugar, add vanilla and lemon. Then mix through the flour. Roll between two sheets of baking paper, and chill a little in the fridge.
Cut out stars and bake at 170C for about 15 minutes.
This dough also freezes easily into a log, just cut off rounds to bake as you need them.
