Sneaky melting moments

Our house has been on a diet for the past 3 months and we are about to enter another round next week so now is my chance to make some sneaky lemon melting moments. We have an informal house rule  - no using the kitchen aid therefore no treats! A major change from the normal 2 to 3 baked goods a week coming from our kitchen.

Michelle Bridges your 12 week challenge rocks and we have been pretty religious following the rules but you need a blow out every now and then... A little bit of the challenge has rubbed of by making these biscuits in mini.

I have been dreaming of making and eating melting moments for weeks and with our lemon tree laden I could not resist any longer. The lemons this year have been hit and miss (some rock hard and others juicy). Probably has something to do with the general neglect our tree has faced - other than the random pee from the boys of our house (scientifically proven to help).

60g icing sugar
