Biscuits, Cookies & Cakes

Venetian Biscuits

I remember these as a rare and special treat when I was a kid.

These biscuits just melt in your mouth and unlike the commercial variety, this recipe is full of the goodness of real ingredients and no fillers. Rarely will they last more than 3 days in our house as they are so yummy they are gobbled up very quickly.

The icing on the top means they take a little longer to make but I love the journey of creating a very special biscuit and it is so worth it.
