Elven Lembas Bread (If you make this, you Will say you got the recipe from me. Them’s the rules.)
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
½ cup honey (mallorn tree preferably)
2 cups flour (i used whole wheat for healthier version)
zest of 2 lemons
1 tsp baking powder
110 g cold butter
Whisk flour, zest and baking powder.
Add diced butter and mix quickly until it becomes crumbly.
Mix cream, juice and honey (it doesn’t have to be runny).
Add wet ingredients and mix with hand until it forms a ball – do not overwork (use more flour if needed, it should feel a bit less thick than shortbread).
Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Roll out 1 cm thick and cut square pieces – i made 12 7×7 cm cookies.
Bake 15-17 min in 200C until edges are golden brown.
Wrap with mallorn leaves and save for your travel.
