Christmas Shortbread Crunch Biscuits!

I love a crunchy biscuit with a Christmas time cuppa, and lots of home made biscuit recipes end up a bit soft. This one gives a proper crunchy biscuit! With the extra sparkle of the sprinkled sugar and the end. Perfect for after dinner coffee or tea! You can make the dough early, ready to bake with kids or anyone who needs a lttle christmas job!

The Broyé du Poitou, an old, traditional French recipe for a buttery biscuit coming from the Poitou region of western France. Easy to make, doesn't need a special tin and traditionally broken into little pieces, for sharing, by giving one big punch to the middle of it. The hard biscuit then breaks into chunky shards.

Cookies, but better

Cookies, but better

I'm only adding this as I want a discount voucher, but being perfectionist, I would not offer anything less than.. well, perfect. The recipie has a strange amount of ingredients as it's not from the recipie book, please, don't be put off by that (and of course, you don't have to measure exactly). These are incredibly tasty, chewy and full of 'healthy energy' cookies. Best eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, with milk or in the park. Also, I would like to mention, that it's not worth baking it if you are going to substitute or skip ingredients such as dried coconut, semolina, oat groats, cacao bean nibs and prunes, as without it, it will just be like any other cookies you've made before... p.s. sorry about the photo, only two cookies were left by the time i've got to my camera...

Nordic malt cookies

Nordic malt cookies

Crispy cookies with a beautiful dark colour and a great malty, almost coffee or chocolate-like flavour. For Christmas you could add flavorings such as 1 tsp mixed spices and ½ tsp grated orange zest – not Nordic, but very tasty!
