New year hamper: Chilli Biscuits

 Actually I made a promise that I will post this recipe ^^, but yesterday my life was in hectic mode and I didn't have enough time to type the recipe.

Today is a bit better, haha, so I rush to the computer when I have time and try to finish typing it as soon as possible. This cookie is one of the item that I put in my ideal new year hamper (you can read about it and see other items in the basket, here).
I made it with the idea that, we need something savoury to enjoy too, and this cookie will be great to serve with some drink and will keep you (and other people) happy while talking all night long ^^.
 I love the flavor of the Shichimi togarashi (Japanese chilli mix) so much I use it instead of the chilli flakes and paprika (so if you have other kinds of chilli you can use it). The amount of the chilli will depend on how hot you want, but I think it will be better to stay on a less hot side because you will be able to enjoy the biscuits more, ^^.

 Spoon half of the dough onto a sheet of non-stick baking paper and roll it up into a cyrinder about 4 cm thick by 20-25cm long; repeat with the remaining dough on a second sheet.
