Citrus Polenta Crunchies

citrus cruchies2These are a biscuit with a real crunch. Using polenta adds a grainy texture & I think it works really well with the citrus flavours.

Easy peasy to make and doesn’t take long at all. Strangely they are much nicer when they are cold and not warm out the oven as I usually like biscuits!
