Biscuit Recipes

Biscuit recipes are a family favourite; they're quick and easy and are loved by everyone. We've got simple recipes like our gingerbread men or peanut butter biscuits and for something a little more impressive try our raspberry and elderflower shortbreads.

There's nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked biscuits - they're a delight to share once they're done and they also make a wonderful gift, all you need to do is take a nice box or cellophane and wrap them with a bow!

Christmas cookies make the best gift as they're not only thoughtful but they will show just how much you care as the decorating can sometimes take a little while. You really can't go wrong. It's also a lovely wholesome family activity to decorate Christmas cookies together, so if you're expecting kids round during the festive period, keep them busy with some icing pens.

Everyone loves coming home to the smell of baking and it's not just the kids that'll be over the moon when you've tried our biscuit recipes. We've got our own take on classic biscuit recipes like custard creams and jammy dodgers and we guarantee that once you've made your own you'll never go back to shop bought.

Our bags and shoes cookies are so delicate and they're ideal for when you're expecting friends for afternoon tea. We suspect that even the men in the house won't be able to resist them once they've seen them - they're an absolute delight!

If you're looking to really impress then you can't go wrong with our pistachio and orange shortbread hearts - they make a great gift for a loved one and are full of sophisticated flavours. 

Our biscuit recipes are the ideal accompaniment to your afternoon cup of tea, and if you keep them in an airtight container they will keep for some time so you'll be able to enjoy them for longer. That is, unless they get devoured as soon as they've come out of the oven.
