Step 1 of 4
Beat the unsalted butter, sugar and condensed milk together until creamy. Add the egg (don’t worry if it looks like its curdling), beat well and then add the flours, spice and lemon zest. Mix to a firm but sticky dough. Cover in cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Why not add vanilla and roll in some chocolate chips to your dough for a chocolatey version?

Step 4 of 4
