Good enough to eat …

We love it when Sandrine from CRT Poitou-Charentes comes to visit as she always brings a treat for us to try.  It’s a very clever ploy too as it teaches us about the delicious regional specialities from the region as well as being quite hard to resist – as you can see :).

The Broyé du Poitou is a flat shortcrust biscuit made with wheat flour, a lot of butter, sugar, fresh eggs and salt without preservatives or colourings.  This particular biscuit was made by Goulibeur who have been making this (essentially) shortbread for over 35 years from their family’s own recipe.

What we particularly liked however was the instructional guidelines for breaking up this oversized cookie – you make your hand into a fist and smash it down.  Very satisfying!
