Price offers are listed in ascending price order. Prices shown include VAT (including all taxes). The postage price shown corresponds to the cheapest home delivery offered by the merchant. aufeminin.com indicates in its price tables those merchants who wish to attend provided that they show prices inclusive of VAT (including VAT – including all taxes) and that they represent a high level of service quality and customer satisfaction. This reference is paid. Therefore, our price tables are not exhaustive of all offers and merchants that are on the market. The offers presented in the price tables are updated daily and several times a day for certain stores.

Preheat the oven to 170°C or thermostat 6.

Start by making the nut butter. It’s easy to do, just melt the butter in a pot and when it turns a little brown on the sides, it’s ready! After straining, put it in a bowl and let it cool.

Beat the egg whites until stiff (firm), pour in the sugar and continue beating. Sift together the flour, cornstarch and brown sugar before gently incorporating them into the batter. Now add the lime zest.

Tip from Yann Couvreur

You can also add whatever you like to the recipe, be it coconut, tonka bean or even vanilla!

Gently fold in the lukewarm nut butter so that the egg whites don’t fall off. Do this several times if necessary. After that you can put it in your pocket.

Now it’s time to place your shapes (here kugloff) using a brush with softened butter. The butter allows the brown sugar to absorb well, which is then poured in.

Using a piping bag, fill the tins almost to the brim before baking in the oven for 18 minutes.

Unwrap Savoy Biscuits while still slightly warm on a wire rack. Then sprinkle generously with powdered sugar, vanilla powder, and lemon zest.

Enjoy your lunch!

Tip from Yann Couvreur

For lemon zest, nothing beats peeling it with a peeler before drying it in the oven at 180°C for 2 hours before blending.
