I don’t know if anyone have ever heard a cookie with this name. ??? I called this cookie recipe , “Biscoriso” because it comes from the Italian word “biscotti (cookies) + riso (rice)”. (I use rice flour and all purpose flour in this recipe). I always prepare it during the holiday season as a gift for my friends and relatives or simply offering the cookies with coffee or tea to those who come and visit me during Christmas. This is the recipe:
250 GRAMS RICE FLOUR
250 GRAMS ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
140 GRAMS BUTTER
200 GRAMS SUGAR
16 GRAMS BAKING POWDER (SIFTED)
2 ML LEMON FLAVOURING OR RIND OF 1 LEMON
5 TBSP OF MILK
MIX THE ABOVE INGREDIENTS WELL.
LET THE DOUGH REST FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES IN THE FRIDGE.(THE DOUGH MUST BE SOFT. IF IT’S TOO SOFT, ADD FLOUR. IF TOO HARD, ADD MILK)
REMOVE DOUGH FROM THE FRIDGE. LET REST FOR 1 – 2 HOURS ON THE KITCHEN COUNTERTOP
ROLL OUT DOUGH (4 -5 MM) USING A ROLLING PIN. USE DESIRED CHRISTMAS COOKIE CUTTERS TO GIVE THE COOKIES A SPECIAL FORM
PREHEAT OVEN AT 180°C FOR 15 MINUTES
BAKE AT 180°C/12 MINUTES. 10 MINUTES IF YOU WANT IT TO BE SOFT AND NOT CRUNCHY
WISHING EVERYONE A WONDERFUL AND MEANINGFUL CHRISTMAS!!!!
