Lychee Lemon Sorbet ~ 荔枝柠檬沙冰


What can be more refreshing then a serving of homemade sorbet as an afternoon snack or a dessert? This is a very simple sorbet, basically, it's just frozen water or juice with some fruit and in my case, it's lychee and lemon with a sprinkling of freshly ground kaffir leaves.  The kaffir leaves are not only fragrant but the tiny dots of green just help to make the sorbet more attractive and pretty.


Recipe for Lychee Lemon Sorbet ~  荔枝柠檬沙

Ingredients                                       


  • 1 can Lychee with juice
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp Cointreau (optional)
Method
  1. Puree the Lychee with juice, kaffir leaves, salt and lemon juice in a blender till smooth.  Strain the mixture and blend again.
  2. Pour the mixture into a container, cover with cling wrap and chill in the fridge, overnight.
  3. Proceed with the instructions as per your icecream maker but add in the tablespoonful of Cointreau just before adding in the mixture.
  4. Pour the sorbet into a container and freeze till required.

Chocolate and vanilla are the best of friends and they complement extremely well with each other. This is a very easy recipe and these cuppies can be done in a pretty short time.  They are soft, moist and  with the two-tone butter frosting, they are seriously yummy!

Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
