    Grease a straight surface and "stretch" the two dough balls like seen in the picture. (By the way,what's the actual term for doing that?)

  • Step 8

    Put the black (thin) piece of dough above the white one and roll them together. Then wrap them in foil and put in fridge for 30 minutes or so.

    Get the roll out and cut slices about 1cm thik.
    Put them in a baking tray covered in baking paper,and bake them for about 10-12 minutes.
    Be careful to leave enough space between the cookies,or else they won't look nice.

    Step 10

    Decorate the biscuits if you feel like decorating them. I put melted chocolate on them because they didn't seem sweet enough,but I believe you should try them first before putting chocolate on them.

Such a blast from the past - I made these at school twelve years ago (God I feel old now!)

Mine came out runny. Like, really runny. I had to add more flour and sugar until it actually looked, felt, and tasted like dough.

not sure,to be honest...try a different flavour if you don't want/have rum...perhaps almond? or maybe coffee...because it could be rather bland otherwise...

thanks! We preheat the oven pretty much at maximum,I preheated it to 240. I don't think you need more than this. Maybe even a little less.
