Grease & line the base and sides of the baking tin and preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 170°C.

In a food processor, blitz together all the ingredients for the biscuit base until it looks like fine breadcrumbs.

Tip the mixture into the prepared baking tin (it will seem a little powdery but it’s fine, don’t worry!) Press it in with the back of a metal spoon.

Allow to cool for a minute whilst we make the topping.

In a large bowl, whisk together the caster sugar, flour, eggs, lemon zest & juice. Allow to stand for 10 minutes then whisk again.

Then allow to cool completely in the tin before removing and slicing into 15 pieces. (A 3 x 5 grid.)

Dust the tops with a generous sprinkle of icing sugar then store in an airtight container and consume within 3 days.
