A creamy lemon dessert with homemade biscuits from Russell on Come Dine With Me Eastbourne
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6 for making the biscuits. In a bowl cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the lemon zest and egg, then gradually add the flour and salt to make a dough.
Shape the dough into a block, wrap in clingfilm and freeze for 1½ hours.
Remove the clingfilm from the dough and cut into slices. Cut into rounds using a cutter and place on a buttered baking sheet.
Bake for 8-9 minutes until golden brown, then allow to cool on a wire rack.
For the posset, put the cream, sugar and lemon zest into a pan and bring to boil, stirring now and then to dissolve the sugar.
Boil for exactly 3 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the lemon juice.
Strain the mixture through a sieve, then pour into martini glasses and chill until needed.
Decorate the possets with raspberries and serve with the biscuits.
