You’ll probably remember when I was writing about the Chocolate Dipped Hawaiian Macadamia Nut and Coconut Shortbread I mentioned A LOT of other favours I wanted to give a go. Well this is me working my way through them! Lemon shortbread has always been a favourite and I must admit that the coconut (another flavour I just love) came into the mix because, as I’m sure you all know, next week is Mother’s Day.

For Mother’s Day I am planning on making my Mum a Lemon, Coconut and Sultana Slice and this recipe will be used in that recipe as well. So when you’re making them make sure you bake up an extra batch for next week’s recipe as well. (You won’t be sorry – the Lemon, Coconut and Sultana Slice is absolutely out of this world!!!)

I used a 1 tbsps measure to scoop out the cookies and then flattened them. They were super easy to make and only took 8 mins to cook! So whipping up a second, third, fourth or even fifth batch will take no time at all!

They have a perfect shortbread cookie crunch coupled with an incredible lemony tang! A crowd pleaser every time – if fact you might find yourself having to hide these cookies it you want to enjoy one with your mid-morning cuppa on Tuesday!
