Anise Rusks

I made our favorite rusks first.  Then yesterday I made a batch of anise rusks - they're only okay in my opinion, and I still love the almond, vanilla and cinnamon ones best. 

But rusks themselves are fabulous and so perfect with a hot cup of something.  Don't we need a hot cuppa every day in winter?

I was happily scrabbling in my fabric and patterns the other day, thinking of summer dresses.  Summer!  I love the thought.

I confess, I have no idea what rusks are! I'll have to keep my eyes out for them now...I've been making scones and cheese danish to go with our hot drinks ; )

I've been day dreaming of spring --- because it feels like spring down here.

I've never had a rusk.

what is rusks?

Sew Blessed Maw, rusks are like biscotti. They're basically biscuits which are baked until they're hard and dry - perfect for dunking. Follow the link in the first sentence for more details - the recipe is there too.

I dread summer... the heat, humidity, and bugs... it's not my favorite time of year, although I love having the kids at home and going to the pool.

Why is it that I don't like anise?

Its been so unseasonably nice here it is hard NOT to think of summer!

Your rusks are so delicious, Margo. Did you make these in a more "dunkable" shape? as opposed to the wider wedge? Mom

Margo said...

Mama, yes! You can have one (or more) tonight.
