Lime shortbread

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, April 11, 2014, In : cookies

I wanted to use my stevia powder again so I found this recipe at I Quit Sugar. I must admit I still haven't likened to the taste of stevia so I'll just use agave or maple or rice syrup if I want a sugar-free treat.

150g
unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 tablespoon
granulated stevia (I used 1 tsp powder)
2 teaspoons
good quality vanilla extract, or vanilla bean paste
1 1/4 cups
plain flour
1 teaspoon
finely grated lemon rind (or lime)

Frances's lime shortbread with feijoa zest

Posted by Bake Club on Thursday, March 31, 2011, In : cookies 


What a surprise it was to find an email in the Bake Club mail box from Christoph Vogel from The Aucklander saying he would like to do a story about Bake Club! It was the day before I was going to the US for a month so I quickly answered some questions via email. Christophe also wanted a pic. I thought it would look much better if I actually had some baking in front of me so after dinner that night I made the quickest batch of shortbread ever. But because I was going away ...

I had the extreme pleasure of tasting Ginny's macarons and they were the BEST I've ever had in NZ.! Bravo! I even thought they were better than the ones I had in Zurich in 2008 (the real deal pictured on my lap below).

They are gluten free too so I'll be making some soon.
