Vanilla thins

With the festive season well and truly upon us, I thought it would be a good time to share the recipe for these Vanilla thins with you all.  Not to be mistaken with the vanilla shortbread version known by the same name, these crispy buttery biscuits are popular throughout France, Italy and Spain, where they’re […]
