Lemon Kisses Recipe | Valentine’s

Another Valentine’s themed recipe for you today, Lemon Kisses. These are SO GOOD if I do say so myself (I hate complementing my own cooking). I had a massive baking session one Sunday afternoon and made these, the Jam Tarts featured last week and some Lemon Meringue Cupcakes that will be featured next month. Out of the three, these we my favourites by far and my Mum loved them too – she actually asked me for the recipe to make them herself. These are very lemony as there’s lemon in the biscuits, centres and icing so if you’re not a big fan of lemon, this probably isn’t the recipe for you but if you love lemon like me, what are you waiting for?

Lemon Kisses


Lemon Kisses Ingredients:

Makes 20 Lemon Kisses


200g soft butter

140g caster sugar

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

2 lemons

280g plain flour

1/2 jar lemon curd

140g icing sugar



Preparation – 40 minutes | Baking – 10-12 minutes


1. Stir together the butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla essence and zest from 1 lemon with a wooden spoon. Then stir in the flour to make a smooth dough.

2. Roll out onto a floured surface and stamp out 40 hearts (or as many as your mixture will make). Arrange onto baking trays, cover with cling film and leave in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.

3. Heat the oven to 200c (180c fan) and bake the hearts for 8-12 minutes until pale and golden. Leave to cool.

4. Spread half of the biscuits with lemon curd then top each one with another biscuit.

5. Mix the lemon juice and icing sugar together then drizzle over the top of the Lemon Kisses, scatter with lemon zest and leave to set.




I’d love to see your photos on Twitter (@AmiRoseBlog) if you have a go at making these yourself.

Until next time,

    They look so nice and the fact that there's only 5 steps to make these seems to jump out to me as I'm shocking at baking haha! Surely I can't go wrong?!

      I love these too, I ate sooooo many. My fiancé loved the Jam Tarts so he demolished those and I finished off these.

    Lemon is one of my favourite flavours when it comes to cake/sweet treats and these sound heavenly, so I'll definitely attempt to whip up a batch this week! 🙂
