What Are Biscuits & Cookies?

Biscuits, (not to be confused with American biscuits, but rather the UK name for our version of cookies), is a tea-time classic and pretty much always paired with a tea, coffee or a cold glass of milk! Whatever name you know them by, they are here to stay and no doubt even more delicious ones to comes!


My Biscuits & Cookies

The following is a list of my biscuits and cookies, some my own recipes and some I have reviewed. I probably had near on 50 recipes on the old website, so please bear with me while I get them on here. I am updating the photos and recipes a little, as I have developed A LOT in the last 2 years, and hopefully your baking has too. So with that said, these things take time to get online. So I appreciate your patience.

Any Recipes Missing?

If there’s an old recipe not on here that you want to make again, just let me know via the contact page, social media on by message. In the meantime here are some to get your tastebuds going……..

TRADITIONAL SCOTTISH SHORTBREAD

This is my popular biscuit recipe, and not just because of it’s taste and texture, but because it is authentic and actually what us Scots actually make. So much better than the shop bought.
