For the cream. Heat the milk with the vanilla and lemon zest. Meanwhile, the milk is heating, place in a saucepan the yolks and whip up with a whisk with the sugar, add the flour and lastly the lemon juice. When the milk will become hot add it to the mixture and stir very quickly, put on low heat and bring to a boil, let it cool before using the cream.

While the cream is cooling down, prepare the pastry. To make it follow the method of "fraisage" described and illustrated in our basic preparations, adding a pinch of baking powder (recommended for these filled cookies) and ginger, it would be better to grate it at the time (the one that you buy already powder generally has lost much of its flavor).
Roll the pastry until you get a thickness of 0.5 cm. With a pastry cutter with a diameter of 3 cm get many disks. Take a portion of these discs make holes with a fork and sprinkle with beaten egg white. Take other disks and cut them further to the center with another pastry cutter with smaller diameter (2 cm). In this way you will get some donuts which then you will have to overlay to the disks previously obtained. They will be a kind of vol-au-vent puff pastry, sprinkle on the surface of the egg white and bake in oven at 180° C for about 15-20 minutes.
Once cooked and cooled stuffed them with the lemon cream, sprinkle them with a mixture of icing sugar and ginger powder and serve them.

These biscuits are dedicated to that little Anna with her mother and grandmother the other day took part in a arts and crafts market to donate the proceeds to charities .. Sweet souls that we decided to pay homage with these shortbread with lemon cream and very fragrant ginger. Anna adores the yellow so she liked them very much (although she did not ate them, she still eats baby food ...), but all the others on the market have appreciated them a lot.
