Viennese Biscuits

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

They are easy to make and are really ‘melt in the mouth’ tasty. These biscuits are easy to make and ideal for sharing. These biscuits are heaven on a plate! Easy to make but hard to stay away from! Are similar to an extremely short shortbread. The wonderfully fine-textured biscuit melts in the mouth while the smooth, velvety chocolate adds a silky richness to this classic biscuit.
