Grapefruit Cookies


  • 2 Florida Grapefruit, zest
  • 250g plain flour 
  • 70g icing sugar 
  • 150g butter, cut into chunks 
  • 2 free range egg yolks 
  • 100g grapefruit curd 


  1. Pre-heat oven at 170°C/338°F
  2. Sift the flour and icing sugar into a mixing bowl. Add the zest of the Florida Grapefruit. Mix well.
  3. Blend the butter into the flour mixture until it forms a crumble texture. Use your hands if it’s easier. Transfer the crumble onto a clean worktop and press together until it forms a dough, then roll into a cylinder shape, approximately 5cm in diameter, and place in the fridge for 1 hour to cool.
  4. Slice the cookie dough into 2cm thick disks and place onto a baking tray. 
  5. Once the biscuits have warmed up to room temperature, (it should take 15-20 minutes) use your thumb to make an imprint on the top of each biscuit. 
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 170°C/338°F for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Remove the biscuits from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes, then add a small spoon of the curd (or jam) on top of each of the biscuits.
