Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5. Beat the butter, 55g (¼ cup) of the sugar, half of the lemon zest and half of the lime zest together until smooth. Then stir in the flour, until a smooth dough is formed.


Turn the dough out onto a work surface and roll it out to 1cm-thick.


Cut 20 circles or fingers out of the dough and place them onto a non-stick baking tray. Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.


Once chilled, bake in the oven for 1520 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Sprinkle over the remaining sugar and lemon and lime zest, and leave to cool.
