Toasted-flour biscuits


Toasted-flour biscuits
This is a surprising biscuit recipe, in which the flour is not added in its normal state, but gently toasted beforehand in the oven.

This light dry-roasting changes the taste considerably, giving these biscuits notes of honey, coffee and even spices.

Their distinctive flavour goes very well with either tea or coffee.
