Mother-in-laws’ tongues (Lingue di suocera)

Based on Mary Taylor Simeti's recipe in Bitter Almonds (Bantam Books).

You'll need

  • 250 gm
  • plain flour
  • 100 gm
  • caster sugar
  • 100 gm
  • butter
  • 2
  • egg yolks
  • 80 gm (1/3 cup)
  • lemon marmalade
  • For dusting:
  • icing sugar

Method

  • 01
  • Pulse flour and sugar in a food processor to combine, add butter and blend until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg yolks, one at a time, pulsing after each to combine. Add just enough cold water to allow dough to come together, then wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 190C. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface to 5mm thick. Cut out ovals using a 8cm x 7cm oval cutter (or a 8cm-diameter cutter). Spoon ½ tsp of lemon marmalade into the centre of each oval, bring together the long ends and pinch to join.
  • 03
  • Place biscuits on baking paper-lined oven trays and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
