Sourdough Discard Raisin Biscuit Crackers

The excess of raisins in the apartment led me thinking about about raisin biscuits, also known as sultanas, a buttery fruit cracker snack from my childhood.

Almond Cookies

This is my version of the traditional Chinese almond cookies. It is crumblier, subtly sweet, milkier and coarser in texture due to the higher percentage of almond flour.

It also add moisture…
