For our readers who speak British English, there is no sugar in these biscuits. They aren't what Americans call cookies. They're savory, spicy, and a perfectly delicious ending to a hearty meal.
Flour, egg, olive oil, baking powder, and plenty of salt and pepper are the ingredients.
After combining the ingredients, the dough rests for a bit. Then it's rolled out thinly, cut into two-inch disks, given a little egg wash, and baked.
With Marcella's suggestion that "These are excellent aperitif cookies." I decided their peppery taste would pair perfectly with my homemade strawberry & black peppercorn liqueur.
