    15ml Lime Juice

    80ml Full Fat Coconut Milk

    1 tsp. Cornflour

    35g Caster Sugar 


    Easter Egg Cutters such as eggs, flowers or rounds


    Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.

    Beat together the butter and sugar until smooth.

    Stir in the flour and lime zest until smooth and then roll out the dough to about 5mm thick.

    Cut out 16 shaped biscuits and then cut a circle out of 8 to create the yolks.

    Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden then leave to cool.

    Place all of the ingredients for the coconut and mango cream into a blender and blitz until smooth.

    Dust with icing sugar then serve.
