    These are great for Christmas gifts. For a richer almond flavour, use almond extract or almond liqueur instead of the vanilla.

    Full of flavour, melt in the mouth and wonderfully crisp. Taste truly indulgent but are quite virtuous with less fat and sugar than most and complex carbohydrates for a lower GI score:-) I came up with this recipe to help friends with morning sickness as ginger is a great help for anyone suffering nausea.

    Otherwise known as Bones of the Dead - this is my nana's recipe. Serve with wine or your favourite ice cream. They are also a great accent to a good cup of coffee.

    Chocolate biscotti, made with your favourite chocolate bar! You can use almond instead of hazelnuts, if desired, and can use any other type of chocolate bar. Plain chocolate works well.

    A reduced fat, reduced calorie yummy, soft oatmeal raisin cookie that uses light margarine spread rather than butter and a calorie free sugar substitute rather than caster sugar. Also dairy free, these cookies are a yummy good idea if you have any of these dietary needs or preferences.

    Kwarezimal, or Lenten cookies in English, are low-fat cookies that were traditionally prepared by Maltese people to eat when they were fasting during Lent. Surprisingly, they could indeed eat these delicious cookies :) . . . even if they were fasting! Still popular to this day as a dessert or tea time snack, this is surprisingly healthy. The only honey which resembles the exquisite Malta honey is Greek Hymettus, from the mountain of that name. It is now extremely difficult to obtain the real Malta honey (which is flavoured with wild thyme).
