oh, this one I can't even explain in English. :silly:

Here is a link: www.istrianet.org/istria/gastronomy/osteria/crostoli.htm

I don't really feel that the link explains it well, but you have pictures there and recipes so you can probably imagine it somehow in your head. ;)

To see a world in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Oh wow..Are they crunchy or do they end up chewy?

They look like sugary crisps to me. :P How unusual.

They are crunchy! :-)
Can't really explain the texture because I can't compare them to any other type of sweets! They are typical for Croatia and Italy (Adriatic coast).

:P Ah. Well thank you for the recipes - If I ever do end up making them, I'll post up the results.

Highly unlikely they'll end up being anything like the 'proper' stuff though. :woohoo: But I reckon it'll be a fun attempt.
