Anzac Biscuits

I decided on a biscuit day, and first up was my take on Anzac Biscuits.  ANZAC actually stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corp.  That army fought valiantly in World War 1 at Gallipoli and other places.  Anzac biscuits, in one form, were sent to the troops.  I believe, from reading, that those biscuits […]

Lemon Shortbread Biscuits

I wanted to make some lemon biscuits, so that is what I did, and what a very nice biscuit they are too. I started by searching around for a recipe.  The first I found was for something called Gooey Lemon Cookies.  But I was not convinced, by the listed ingredients, that they would effectively hold […]

Abbey Crunch Biscuits

Years ago McVitie’s used to have a wonderful biscuit called Abbey Crunch.  They don’t seem to make it any more, and it is such a shame.  They tasted so good, with a crunchy at texture and a lovely flavour of golden syrup.  I just had to try to make some so I set about looking […]

Cardamom & Lemon Stamped Cookies

I found an interesting recipe for these Cardamom and Lemon biscuits(cookies) on the BBC Food site.  It is a recipe from The Hairy Bikers.  Since I had some cardamom that I had ground myself a few weeks ago, and a lemon that was sitting looking sorry for itself, I thought I would give them a […]

Custard Cherry Biscuits

I found a recipe for these Custard Cherry Biscuits on Flickr.  I was paging through some photos using Google search and saw the photo.  Visiting the website that the photo is on provided a recipe as well.  It all looked very simple, so I thought I would give it a try. The result turned out […]

Chocolate Oat Cakes

Christmas is over and I am back to trying to find some nice items to bake.  I decided on oat cakes.  Now they are usually a biscuit(UK biscuit not US biscuit), and quite plain.  But I stumbled across a recipe for a chocolate version, which is more of a small cake than a traditional biscuit. […]

Oatie Biscuits

I thought I would try to come up with a little concoction, very simple, but hopefully quite tasty.  Just some flour, butter, sugar and oats, to make some biscuits, similar to hob nobs. Some spare glace moreno cherries, quartered and popped in the middle of each biscuit should give an extra hit of flavour during […]
