  • In bowl, beat eggs and sugar
  • Add zests, rosemary, vanilla and then chopped nuts
  • Add sifted flour and baking powder to form a stiff dough
  • This is fairly sticky (due to lack of oil and butter) so spray oil on your hands before shaping into two long, thin logs and placing apart on a well-greased baking tray
  • Bake in preheated, moderately hot oven for 30 minutes
  • Remove and cool.
  • When cold, slice diagonally into 1-2 cm
  • Place slices onto a baking tray and return to a low oven
  • Bake until crisp and brown for approximately 20 minutes, before switching off oven and then allow cooling and drying out in the oven overnight
