Spread butter around a 8.6 inch spring-form tin and pour in the dough. Bake at 390 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes.

Butter Cookie Custard
Milk 1 cup
Butter Cookies 1oz
Egg whites 4 pc/2.8oz
Cane sugar 2 T
Zest and juice from lime, optional 1 pc

Blend cookies in a food processor and add sugar, egg whites and gradually milk. Pour into a pot and heat it up while stirring. When the custard is boiling, turn down the heat and let the custard simmer for a couple of minutes while still stirring. Be careful not to let it burn.. Pour the Butter Cookie Custard to a piping bag or a regular small, plastic bag. Place it in a freezer for a minimum of two hours.

Meringue
Egg whites 3 pc, pasteurized
Sugar 4.4oz

Whip together egg whites and sugar with a hand mixer to make the meringues.

Place half of the strawberries evenly around on top of a cake bottom. Spray half the Cookie Custard between the berries. Add a cake bottom on top and repeat the procedure. Finish with the last cake bottom on top and spread the meringues around the whole cake with a spatula. The easiest way is to start with the sides and then the top. Optionally, you can lightly "burn" the meringues with a kitchen torch. Decorate with Butter Cookies resembling a band around the bottom. Finish with macadamia nuts and sprinkles on top as shown in the picture.
