    Walnut and Cherry Biscuits

    Today’s proposal is beautiful and colorful biscuits the ones that make your day! Light, with only a few ingredients and easy to prepare, they are ideal to accompany your coffee or your tea. These walnuts and cherry biscuits contain sugar, a small amount of course.

    The method of preparation is different from the classic cookies and the way of baking them  is much like that of biscotti. In essence, we make a meringue and then mixed it with all remaining ingredients. The only requirement is that we have to bake the biscuits twice. We prepare and bake them the one day, freeze them, and the next day we slice the cake and bake again.

    The cherries I used in this recipe is candied or glace cherries. Regarding the flour, I used the one I‘ve told several times before, in the recipes for breadsticks with Greek herbs and homemade digestive cookies; it is the organic whole meal emmer flour. You can make these biscuits with plain whole wheat flour, of course.
