A biscuit bonanza. Getting ready for biscuit week on #GBBO

Next week on The Great British Bake Off is biscuit week.

I do love a biscuit. I’m not a snob. I’m as happy with a pink wafer as I am with a richly chocolate coated, foil wrapped Club. What I really love though is a home made biccie. I have made so many and shered them on Mintcustard that I thought I’d put some of my favourites together in one post.

My Mum was an enthusiastic biscuit baker, so I have to include her ginger nuts!

Another one of her recipes was for Viennese whorls which I pimped just a little!

This is another family recipe, I’ll get to mine in a moment, My Nanna’s shortbreads. Simple and delicious.

One of my favourite biscuits as a child were bourbons. Here I have added my own little twist to the recipe.

 Mocha bourbon biscuits.

One step up from a bourbon is to completely cover it in chocolate, and that is what you can do if you make Tim Tams.

Is it a cake or is it a biscuit? I don’t care, Jaffa cakes rock. As does making your own.

Don’t forget biscuits can be savoury too. Here are my Cheesy Hammy dodgers.
