Lemon infused butter biscuits

I love butter biscuits… I could eat an entire tin full by myself and still want more.

This is a family recipe that was passed down from my gran to my mom and she in turn passed is down to me.

This recipe makes roughly 10 – 12 dozen it all depends on the shapes that you make.
