Easter biscuits

all details

These biscuits are traditionally served on Good Friday in Corsica, where they are known as Fugazzi. The originals are baked with pastis, a licorice-flavoured liqueur, but Pernod or ouzo will give the same flavoursome results.

  • 2 cups plain flour, sifted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 tablespoons Pernod or milk
