Ingredients

  • 135 gram butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoon condensed milk
  • 200 gram plain flour (about 1½ cups)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 150 gram white chocolate drops
  • zest of 2 limes
  • 100 gram white chocolate (Nici used Whittaker's West Coast Buttermilk Caramelised)
  • dash of milk
  • extra lime zest, to garnish

Method

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 170°C.Line a baking tray (or 2) withbaking paper.
  • 2
    Cream the butter, sugar and condensed milk until light and fluffy. Sift in the flour and baking powder, then add the chocolate drops and lime zest. Mix to combine – it will be a stiff, lumpy dough.
  • 3
    Roll into large walnut-sized pieces and place on a tray with space around each. Flatten with your palm (or a floured fork) and bake for 15-20 minutes until just browning on the edges. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 4
    Gently warm the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) boiling water until just melted (see note). Add the milk, if needed, to loosen.
  • 5
    Drizzle on the cool biscuits and scatter over the zest.
  • 6
    Store in an airtight container.

Notes

Chocolate can "seize" when melting. If this happens, add a little milk or cream to loosen it.
