Description

The main flavours of these cookies, both have their origin in Southeast Asia, so it’s hardly surprising how much they’ve shaped Asian recipes, especially desserts.

A little bit about Coconut….
Sweet, buttery and creamy, the strong flavour of coconut can be too much for some people, but don’t discount it. The key to unlocking the best flavour of coconut is balance, too much of anything can destroy flavour. Coconut is very rich and creamy, so it needs something sharp and punchy to prevent it overtaking the whole flavour.

A little bit about Lime….
All citrus fruits are thought to be native of Southeast Asia and lime is one of the most distinctive, with a much more sour than sweet flavour. It works so well in savoury dishes because it’s not too sweet. You’ll find that Kaffir Lime leaves actually feature a lot in Asian desserts, which really has quite a different flavour to lime juice, it’s actually quite similar to bay leaf which is just too savoury for brownies, that’s why we stick to Lime juice!

Lime meets Coconut…
You just can’t really question this combination, it would be like saying strawberries and cream don’t belong together! Lime is the perfect citrus fruit to work with coconut, because it has a bold zesty flavour that can’t overwhelmed by coconut, but it’s not so bitter that the flavours end up fighting with each other, they just harmonise.

Finish it with chocolate!
Usually you tend to see white chocolate paired with lime and coconut, because the sweet creaminess of coconut and white chocolate blend. But then the flavour becomes slightly one dimensional, the additional contrast of rich dark chocolate creates a more indulgent, balanced flavour.
