"These biscuits can be described as 'uzo uzwa ienergy' which is 'You will feel the energy' in a South African language. These biscuits can be eaten after a hard day of work or when you seriously need a pick-me-up. They will not appeal to children too much (maybe teenagers) but are a firm adult favorite."

- Leftover egg yolks can be put into the fridge in a bowl of water and used for other purposes.
- If dough looks too soft in step 5, cover and refrigerate until it's easier to work with.
