A meticulously crafted biscuit brings pleasure you can measure, whilst a poor substitute is surely just a waste of a good cuppa.
One of life’s little joys and, as Border Biscuitiers, their greatest obsession for over thirty years. Border Biscuits is an independently owned sweet biscuit manufacturer established in 1984 in the Scottish town of Lanark. Their Dark Chocolate Gingers are officially the best selling chocolate ginger in Britain.
A UK favorite, these delicious treats feature light and crispy wafer cookies filled with layers of caramel and completely enveloped in rich milk chocolate. Pack these individually wrapped confections in lunches or keep them around to enjoy with a cup of coffee or a spot of tea. These delicious wafers bars are made by the famous Tunnock's of Scotland, founded in 1890 and still family owned.
The story of shortbread begins with the medieval “biscuit bread”. Any leftover dough from bread making was dried out in a low oven until it hardened into a type of rusk: the word “biscuit” means “twice cooked”. Gradually the yeast in the bread was replaced by butter, and biscuit bread developed into shortbread.
