It's a shortbread cookie really with a hint of basil and lime juice. Crisp along the edges but very tasty and like most shortbread-type cookies, not very sweet.
Afternoon tea time.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 stick of butter, chilled and cut into cubes
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
pinch of salt
Put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the dough clumps together. Roll into 1" balls and place onto baking sheet. Smash the cookie down with a "sugar-floured" flat surface. (I used a ramekin dish.)
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. The edges will brown quickly. Cool.
