Cookie Monster: Madeira Biscuits

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

Madeira biscuits are incredibly simple. They're essentially a flat butter cookie sprinkled with raisins, though I like to make mine with a combination of raisins and Zante currants.

The crumbs easily soak up whatever tossed on them—which in this recipe included pine nuts, parmesan, dried currents, cinnamon, crushed red pepper flakes, and oregano—making for a cheap and tasty meal.
