MCAs father made 3 kinds of biscuits for Christmas (he always makes them), but one type in particular is mouthwateringly good. So I asked for the recipe, and here it is for you to try as well…
250g brown sugar
250g syrup (turnip syrup?)
66.5g nuts (chopped almonds)
2.5g carnation? (as a herb I was told) [nellike]
66.5g (citron) candied peel [sukat]
grate half a lemon
Heat the syrup and cool it.
Dissolve the potash in a small amount of boiling water
Add all the ingredients together, and work well.
Roll into long rolls.
Refrigerate the mixture
Cut into thin slices
Cook at 180 degrees for about 8 minutes
IF you can find the ingredients (I think in Malta you may have as much problem with these ingredients as we had with condensed milk in Malta), I am sure you will love them 🙂 Here is a picture to try to tempt you…
