The Kesar Pista Badam Biscuit is a real delicacy with rich spicy notes. Assorted nuts give these biscuits a delectable crunch, while an array of spice powders give it a tantalising aroma. To press the nuts into the dough, roll lightly with a roller pin so that you don’t thin down the dough layer, but at the same time the nuts stick firmly to it.
To get the perfect colour and texture, bake the biscuits for just 15 minutes. It might still seem soft when you take it out of the oven, but once the Kesar Pista Biscuits cool in the tray, they will turn crunchy.
These biscuits are sure to be a family favourite and a perfect gift to make and give for festive occasions like Diwali , Christmas and Raksha - Bandhan .
