Preparation

Step 1

Sift flour, sugar, and baking powder into a large mixing bowl, then make a well in the centre.

Lightly whisk together eggs, lemon zest, and vanilla in a separate bowl.

Pour eggs into centre of well in flour mixture, mixture is dry and crumbly.

Gradually add melted butter until a soft, wet dough is formed.

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, lightly flour your hands, and knead just enough to form a smooth dough.

Use a pastry scraper to help lift and knead dough, adding a little more flour if dough sticks to floured surface. (The dough will be very soft.)

Wrap in plastic and refrigerate overnight.
