    My grandmother would make these every Christmas ( yes, definitely with sugar and a slight anise flavor,tied into a knot shape)they were very crunchy so that they would hold up well for dunking!Very simple and good!

    Hey Eddy, Searching for Portuguese Sweet bread recipes and found all your Portuguese recipes along with what I was looking for. My husband is from Azores immigrated to Canada at age of 10. With family members passing on, I am really missing all the good things that would always be made during the holidays. Are you familiar with the type of biscotto which is not sweet. It has another name I believe it is or sounds like Rohillas or something like that. Looks like the sweet biscotto but is has no sugar. I had the recipe given to me and I recall the recipe using lard instead of butter. My husband family is originally from Graciosa perhaps it is something that was made in this island as I see biscoittos all the time at Portuguese bakeries but not the ones I am talking about. Thanks for reading my email, if you know what I'm referring to please let me know. Happy New Year and all the best in 2022!!

    Hi Jena, thank you for the new year's well wishes, I hope the same to you and family. This is the only thing I can think of, but it does have sugar, you can always leave the sugar out and add a little more flour: https://portugueserecipes.ca/recipe/10/10/Gorete-s-Portuguese-Dry-Rings-Rosquilbas-Secas-Recipe, are these it?
