Fossier Mini Pink Biscuits dates back to the 1690s. At this time, bakers of the Champagne region, anxious to use the heat of their oven after cooking bread, had the idea of creating a special dough which, after having been cooked once, was left in the bread oven where it finished drying.

Hence the origin of the word BIS-CUIT: cooked twice. Originally, the biscuit was white. The decision was taken to flavor the dough with vanilla. In order to do this, the pod had to be crushed with sugar in a mortar to extract the aromatic substance in the form of small, almost black particles.

Mixed with a bright white dough, these vanilla particles discolored the finished biscuit. Someone then had the idea of masking this pigmentation with some red coloring. The delightful Biscuit Rose de Reims was born! Its recipe has remained unchanged since, as well as its method of manufacture, which conserves the double-cooking originality.
