1
Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5 and line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment
2
Place the flour, ground almonds, salt and sugar in a large bowl and mix to combine. Rub the butter in, using the tips of your fingers and thumbs, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs
3
Stir in the lemon zest so it is evenly distributed, then pour in the egg and mix roughly with a fork to combine. Use your hands to knead lightly until you have a soft and slightly damp dough
4
Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes, but preferably 1 hour (or even overnight)
5
Roll the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface until it is about the thickness of a £1 coin (3mm)
6
Use an egg-shaped cutter to cut out as many biscuits as you can, before gently kneading leftover dough and re-rolling and repeating. Use a palette knife to transfer the biscuits to the lined baking sheets and bake for 12–15 minutes, or until dry to the touch and very pale golden in colour
7
Leave the biscuits to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely
8
Once cool, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add enough lemon juice to make a thick, drizzly icing. You can dye the icing with a little food colouring paste if you like
9
Pipe or drizzle over the icing and scatter over the sprinkles. Leave the icing to set before serving
