Step 1Place the butter in a bowl, whisk in the sugar and salt. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to whisk until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Add the lemon zest and flour, mix into a dough using a wooden spoon, flatten a little. Cover the biscuit dough and chill for at least 2 hrs.
Step 2Remove the dough from the fridge approx. 15 mins. prior to rolling. On a lightly floured surface or between a cut-open plastic bag, roll out the dough in batches to approx. 7 mm thick. Cut out popular shapes (e.g. heart), place the biscuits on two trays lined with baking paper. Chill the biscuits for approx. 15 mins.
Step 3Whisk the egg yolk with the water, glaze the biscuits with the egg wash. Optional: to decorate, gently drag a fork diagonally across the glazed biscuits prior to baking.
Step 4Approx. 10 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on a cooling rack.
