  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
       4 oz Butter or margarine
       4 oz Caster sugar
            (fine sugar)
       1    Egg; beaten
       8 oz Homepride plain flour
            Grated rind of 1 lemon
            Icing:; * see note
     Cream together the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the
   egg, a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the
   flour and lemon rind and mix to a firm dough. Roll out on a lightly-floured
   surface to about 1/2 to 1/4 inch thickness and stamp out fancy shapes with
   biscuit cutters.  Place, well apart, on lightly greased baking sheets and
   bake at 350 degree for 15 to 20 minutes until firm and lightly browned.
   Leave to cool on a wire rack.
      Place the icing sugar in a small bowl and gradually add the water until
   the icing is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Adjust the
   consistency by adding more sugar or water. Add a few drops of food
   colouring, spread the icing on to the cooled biscuits and decorate with
   coloured balls.
