Last weekend, it was the most specialest (!) birthday of the year, and this year was even more specialer than usual! :D
How exciting is turning 42!?
Well, I wouldn’t know. But my partner’s 42nd birthday was pretty exciting, I can tell you!
Exciting enough to come up with a new recipe:
lime & white chocolate shortbread!
I think it’s the best summer biscuit ever. I looove the limey freshness.
And this is how it’s done:
Lime & White Chocolate Shortbread Biscuits
250 g flour
70 g sugar
125 g butter
1 pinch salt
zest of 2 limes
200 g white chocolate
Cute the butter into small pieces. Lightly beat the egg with a fork or other weapon of choice. Sift the flour with the sugar, then rub in the butter. Rub thoroughly. Add the egg, salt and zest of 1 lime and work it all into one nice dough. Cover with cling film and chill for a bit. Roll out and cut out in beautiful 4s and 2s and hearts.
Bake at 170° C for about 15 minutes. Let cool completely.
Decorate the shortbread biscuits with the chocolate and the zest of the second lime. It helps if you melt the chocolate first.
