Linguas De Veado / Wine Biscuits – Melt in your mouth biscuits

wine biscuits

These little sweet and crunchy biscuits are called “Linguas de veado” in Portuguese.   Quite interestingly, when translated into English it means ; Butter cookies in the shape of a large tongue.  However, I made them round so that they are easier to pop into the mouth and crunch away in seconds!

Super easy to make and they all will vanish in a jiffy.
