Mom Tips

The 2nd option to assemble the sweet is to alternate layers of dough, biscuits, fruits and repeat the process ending with dough.

Biscuits: they can be thin, they can be wholemeal biscuits, they can be champagne biscuits or any other biscuit of your choice.

You can vary by replacing the mix of nuts and dried fruits with dried red fruits and 100 grams of almond biscuits.

If you prefer, you can decorate with white chocolate.

Approximate yield of 10 servings.
