  • Regular marie biscuits are preferred than the thin biscuits.
  • While dipping biscuits in cofee just dip it once and keep it on the tray.
  • Do not keep for long because there are chances of breaking .
  • I used filter coffee decoction. This can be substituted with either instant coffee mixed with water or any other brewed coffee.
  • The custard cream consistency should neither be too thin nor too thick.
