This easy Middle Eastern inspired recipe is made with the delicious flavours of cinnamon, lemon, vanilla and the sauce it creates is dark and syrupy. It is delicious hot or cold with a dollop of ice cream, cream or yogurt.Continue reading
These are my version of the traditional biscuits called “Brutti-ma-Buoni” in Italian… they are light, chewy, crispy and melt in the mouth and a bit macaron like and the chocolate and nuts magically end up in the centre. They are also gluten and dairy free. Pistachio and chocolate are a fantastic combination and they are perfect with a coffee at the end of a meal and they are super easy to make. I think they make fantastic home made gifts wrapped in cellophane with a ribbon. Perfect at Christmas or anytime.
These shortbreads are coconutty and taste really buttery even though they are dairy free. I love them with a coffee or crunched up on ice cream. No one will ever know they are vegan unless you tell them, and toasting the coconut makes the flavour even more delicious.
Try making them with kids, as they are easy to make and good fun to stamp out into shapes.
