A very sophisticated dessert for real coffee-cake-lovers.
From this recipe you get two cocktails and about 40 biscuits. However, if you do not want to bake all the biscuits at once, you can freeze the dough before you roll it out. Leave the dough only as much as needed.
This recipe comes from the book "Good Food. Dinner-party dishes" Published by BBC Books, 2012.
