Pistachio & Lime Biscuits

Pistachio & Lime Biscuits

Lovely easy little biscuits to make. Pistachio and lime go so well together flavour wise and I  love the vivid green of the pistachios, amazing. They make great little gifts in fancy clear bags with ribbons. Alternatively keep them for yourself in the biscuit tin! They won’t last long…

Have a go at these Pistachio & Lime Biscuits, I’m sure you’ll love them. They are so easy, get the kids baking! We need to give them the cooking skills they need and what better way that to start with a sweet treat.

You never know after a while you may be able to allocate one evening per week that they need to cook for you? Good practice for the future?

Thanks Clare
