|Margarine/Butter||4 Ounce, softened (100 Gram)|
|Icing sugar||4 Ounce (100 Gram)|
|Lemon||1 , rind grated|
|Plain flour||6 Ounce (175 Gram)|
Lightly grease three baking trays.
Cream the fat with the icing sugar until very soft, light and fluffy, then beat in the lemon rind.
Sift the flour into a bowl, then gradually work it into the creamed mixture - the resulting paste should be just soft enough to pipe.
Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a medium sized star nozzle.
Pipe 7.5 cm/3 in letters or numerals on to the prepared baking trays.
Chill them for 30 minutes, or longer if you have time.
Bake the letters in a moderate oven (180C, 350F, gas 4) for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Allow the biscuits to cool on the trays for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
