    These are the rusks I love!! Great photos too! ^_^ Too cute, your daughters are gonna learn to be great cooks if they help you prepare all the dishes for the photo shoots ;) haha...

    I also like the rustic rolled ones, they are more fun to chew on once they are dipped! hehe...

    These sound very good. Have eaten Holland Rusks and I like them. I am wondering if these are similar. Know they are good with a cuppa coffee! :) Thanks for sharing.

    That is way cool! Sort of a cross between a hot bun and biscotti. This is on the to do list for sure. Looks like the taste tester is satisfied. She is adorable! They grow up too fast don't they.
    Thanks for the pics, I like the rolled ones rustic look.

    The one's you rolled into balls will appear more rough than the one's that's been cut.
