Quaresimali
(Lenten biscuits)
  • Preparation time: 20 minutes.
  • Cooking time: 10 minutes.
  • 3 eggs.
  • 150g icing sugar.
  • 100g plain flour.
  • 50g cocoa powder.
  • Salt.

 
Whisk the egg whites until stiff and stir in the sugar, sifted flour and cocoa powder with a pinch of salt. Fill a pastry bag with the mixture and "write" the letters of the alphabet onto a buttered baking tray. Leave plenty of space between the biscuits as they will spread during cooking and might join together . Bake in the oven for ten minutes at 150C. They are ready when they turn an attractive golden brown colour.
 
These biscuits are typical, fatless Lenten fare, as their name suggests.
