Biscottini di Milano

What's the big idea?

Simple snacks, great with coffee. As you no doubt know, the Italians love their coffee, the stronger the better. For an Italian, the idea of having a cappuccino after a meal is strange - a cappuccino is so loaded with milk and calories that it's almost a meal in itself!

These biscuits are a great way to get the kids involved in helping with the preparation for your sporting party!

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 500g plain white flour
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 4 egg yolks
  • Grated zest of one lemon
