    These biscuits are more of a continental style and will have you zinging off the wall if you are a coffee lover. I find that you need to take them with hot drink as they are a dryer type biscuit but wow, do they pack a punch. I used to sell a lot of these biscuits to the coffee lovers. They can take a little to get right and not break them taking them off the tray when they are cooked.
