  1. Preheat the oven to 180Β°C.
  2. Beat the caster sugar and butter in a mixer.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla paste and whip until pale and creamy.
  4. Then add the sifted flour, salt, orange zest, and alcohol if using and mix till combined.
  5. Stir in the nuts.
  6. Using floured hands, shape the dough on a floured workbench, into three sausage-like shapes and bake them on trays lined with baking paper for 20 minutes.
  7. They will expand so don’t place them too close together.
  8. Let them cool slightly, then slice using a sharp knife.
  9. Place the sliced biscuits back on the tray and into the oven and toast for 5 minutes.
  10. You can substitute pistachios for any other nut.
  11. I also like to use a combination of whole almonds and sultanas.
  12. Enjoy
