The holidays are coming and these cookies look and taste delicious, and more than that, they stay this way for many days in a row, and the guests will be very delighted of them, I promise!And the second reason, is that you need just some ingredients, which, I am sure that you all have at this moment, in the kitchen.

    Buna Ioana. Am incercat reteta si intr-adevar, sunt de nota 10. Cu o mentiune: nu cumva sunt 8 tbsp de zahar, adica 8 linguri? Mai sus se intelege ca ar fi 8 lingurite. 🙂

      8 linguri, da 🙂 citeste varianta in romania. sus, in bara de meniu, poti sa alegi. La retete, e mai dificil. Oricum, biscuitii nu ies foarte dulci, neaparat 8 linguri sau mai bine zis, cel putin 8 linguri! kisses

    Nu exista frate retete de prajituri cu “jumatati de masura” o cana, un plic… poate cana mea e una de cafea si e f mica pt reteta ta, sau unul are una de om nesimtit si e f mare… in cofetarie totul e la gram, atata lucru nu poti sa faci pt cititorii tai, sa iti cantaresti ingredientele?
