How to Make Canistrelli Biscuits

Here is how to make Canistrelli Biscuits the Corsican way. First, preheat the oven to about 180°C. You should have mixed the salt and baking powder, white and brown sugar, and flour by this time. Then, mix the olive oil and white wine until your dough becomes smooth and moldable into a ball. Spread the dough according to your preference; you can even opt to cut shapes out of your dough. Once finished, place the cut dough on the baking paper and coat it with powdered sugar.

Wait for the cookies to turn golden brown by baking them for 20 minutes at 180°C. Leave to cool and serve.
