savoury biscuits

Turkish Savoury Biscuits

Try these super simple, savoury snacks from Turkey. My take on a Tuzlu Kurabiye, it it literally translates as ‘salty biscuit’. These are perfect for pairing with your favourite cheese, but equally good snacked on alone. They are very moreish…. you won’t be disappointed.

Can also be made with different shaped cookie cutters for a theme.
