  2. Rusks, biscotti or any other type of bread with fruit and nut are well within my preference. I love the idea of putting in yoghurt, too. Thanks for this recipe!

  5. Oh is THAT what they are? I’ve seen them mentioned here and on other SA blogs before, and I did wonder – over here the term is used almost exclusively for children’s teething biscuits! 🙂 Yours look delicious, Tandy! 🙂

  7. A traditional biscuit/ cookie from home are love letters, very thin wafers made with coconut milk, rolled into cigars or folded into neat squares. I love them! So delicious but quite a tough one to make so they are often only and for special days like Chinese new year. Loved reading about the rusks- learnt something new! And love the use of dried plums and almonds- what a great flavour combi!

  9. Before I tried rusks in South Africa I thought that they were like the baby rusks (which have no flavour). I was so relieved when they weren’t! 😀

  10. Ah, I’m glad you said what rusks are because I’ve never of that before. Love the combination and that you used plums, don’t see those use very often. 😀 Pinning

  11. Hi Tandy!

    I have never heard of rusks. But overall, I find Americans seem to consume (I live in New York) a lot of store bought cookies (at least that’s what I see in the grocery check out line ) like Oreo’s and Keebler cookies. Personally, I think these cookies are terrible and never buy this overly processed types of food, but they are very popular here.

    Your dried plum and almond rusks look like the perfect nightcap with a cup of tea out in the garden of course.

    • HI Laura, I so agree with you about shop bought cookies. I much prefer to make my own as that way I know what are in them. Wish I could be in my garden at present – we are in the middle of a really cold and wet winter 🙂

  12. You put yogurt in the dough for these cookies? Woah! We have little biscuits in India too, but I think we just call them biscuits haha.

  15. Mmmm! I love experimenting with different fruits and adding them to things you wouldn’t normally expect. Dried plums sounds sensational, I’ve got to try this! 🙂

    • I sometimes like making the same flavours over and over again, like I do with bread and granola, but for rusks I like to change things up often 🙂
