I hope you all had a wonderful new years eve! I know, I know, it’s too late to post a Fortune Cookies Recipe now, but better now than never, right? I made these for new years eve, obviously. And of course, in there are some super cool self-written fortunes. They are little bit pinkish, because I added beet juice to the dough. (Have I mentioned that I love coloring desserts with beet juice?)
Empire Biscuits, also known as Imperial Biscuits, German Biscuits or Double Shortbread, are sandwich cookies popular in UK, particularly Scotland. It is very similar to a linzer cookie, being formed by sandwiching 2 shortbread cookies together with raspberry jam. Nothing out of the ordinary till here, but then the cookie is glazed with a simple sugar glaze and decorated with half of glace cherry and that brings these cookies out of anonymity. Honestly, these biscuits shook my world the other day when I made them. I wasn’t expecting them to be this delicious, I thought they would turn out good, but nothing special and they blew me away.
