  • Cut the rolling pin into approx. 0.5 cm thick slices.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 ° C.
  • Place the dough slices on a baking sheet and bake for about 10-15 minutes, do not let them get too dark.
  • Let the biscuits cool down on the baking sheet. IMPORTANT!!!! On no account lift the biscuits hot, otherwise they would crumble. On the other hand, after cooling, they are solid.
