Mousses, “i dolci al cucchiaio” (desserts eaten with a spoon), are the perfect way to finish a dinner with guests. I learned this type of preparation from a chef friend of my family who worked in Switzerland serving the Australian Ambassador.

These buttery lemon biscuits are traditional Christmas treats in Switzerland, usually made for Weihnachten (Christmas eve) and topped with sprinkles - but no worries, they can be enjoyed year-round! Give them a go for a differently sweet elevenses or afternoon tea treat.
