Here’s another christmassy biscuit…

This time last year my tiny studio turned into a mini biscuit factory. Like my aunts in Austria who bake tons of Christmas biscuits every year I like to carry on the tradition (maybe not as well and in smaller quantities). Unfortunately this year I just haven’t had the time to bake as much (slightly due to the fact that I’ve been baking about 500 biscuits a week at La Cocotte recently) so I came up with this easy but just as delicious recipe.

If you’re having problems finding a gift (or you fancy treating yourself) why not buy some Menu for Hope raffle tickets…you could be in for a chance of winning some once in a life time prizes. And at the same time you’ld be doing something great for the people in Lesotho.

I just want to say THANK YOU to all my readers. Your visits and comments are greatly appreciated (to say the least). I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and munch through lots of delicious dishes. I’ll be tucking into some mince pies and no doubt plenty of other scrummy English things when I get back to the UK.

    Hi there,

    When I saw the Biscuits, that were so nicely gifted to me, I thought “Hum I think I know what this is gonna taste like, and I’m gonna like it”.
    But in fact it didn’t at all tasted like what I expected, and I didn’t like it……I loved it!!!!
