Diwali biscuits recipe

by Food Like Amma, October 25, 2020

Growing up in South Africa in the early 1980s, biscuits formed an essential part of Diwali parcels. Amma‘s biscuit specialties being custard biscuits, date rolls and melting moments to name a few.
Now that I am a mum, I too look forward to Diwali with the same level of enthusiasm as Amma did. Except I am unable to make the equivalent quantities she did. I usually make a few of my childhood favourites. This year I have decided to make a few treats with my personal touch. I wanted to embrace the shape, colour and textures of Diwali in a biscuit. The inspiration for these easy eggless biscuits came from teardrop earrings. It is made from a cardamom shortbread biscuit dough cut with a teardrop cutter then filled with colourful crushed lollipops. When baked, the sugar melts reconstituting into a chewy sugar centre. For a bejewelled look, add crushed sweets once biscuits are removed from the oven. I used an icing pen to decorate. This is my first attempt at making decorative Diwali biscuits and I can safely say it won't be my last.
