This famous sweet biscuit literally translates into American, referring to the GIs baking this biscuit in Germany after WW II.It has a fluffy soft texture and a wonderfully vanilla taste. Typically it is covered with a lemon icing (and I will give that option here), but I like it way better without. So do as you please. :)
