Ooh lemon and chocolate chip, just the thought of that combination makes me smile.

I was so excited to bring them together into a biscuit.

This is my own recipe cobbled together form a lemon and rosemary recipe and a bit of experimenting. You may like more or less chocolate chips and more or less lemon. try and see what works for you.

Th need to experiment is always a good excuse to make a second batch!
