getting there ...


Explanation:
Found this link:

http://www.villaitaliabakery.com/cookies.htm

Which has a picture of a biscuit topped with 'imported sucre grain'. Which might suggest you could leave it, but might not.

Anyway, it's not granulated sugar, I think. It seems to be chunkier and darker, but I can't for the life of me remember what this stuff's called. It's like demerara, I think, to give the biscuit a bit of crunch.

Anyway, hope this'll help someone help you!

Regards

Mary
