lemon fingers

I was craving some sweet lemon today and so baked some lemon fingers. I adapted a recipe from Tana Ramsay's Family Kitchen book. Here is the recipe for anyone interested:

175g/6oz butter
175g caster sugar
3 large eggs, beaten
175g/6oz self-raising flour
1 tbsp lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 180/350.
2. Mix together all ingredients. Once smooth pour mixture into a lined & greased baking tin.
3. Bake for approx. 15-20 mins.
4. Once cool, slice sponge into fingers of approx. 21/2 cm x 8cm.
5. Mix together 200g/7oz icing sugar with 2 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp lemon zest & 1 tsp water.
6. Decorate fingers.
