TWD - Coconut-Lime Sables



Put the lime in the coconut and drink ‘em bot’ up. Harry Nilsson


We’re back for July with Tuesdays with Dorie, and this month’s first recipe has tropical flavours that are rather incongruous in the grey, cold winter that I am currently experiencing.

The recipe is Coconut-Lime Sables, little shortbreads flavoured with toasted and untoasted coconut, lime zest and, surprisingly for sweet biscuits, coriander.

The biscuit dough is rolled, frozen, cut out and sprinkled with more coconut before being baked in muffin tins, which helps them to keep their shape.

Dorie said she was surprised that people liked these biscuits so much, but I’m not - they are a textural, tasty bite, both crunchy and chewy as Dorie says. I would make these again.

To see what everyone else made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

  2. These were tasty. I noticed they got a little soft the next day but I loved the flavors.
