Before this day is over, I must tell you that it is National Biscuit Day in the UK! (Wait, it is now the next day over there...oh well!)
Of course, I have told you before that a biscuit in America is a soft breakfast bread but in England, it is a cookie!
(My Dad made the BEST and softest biscuits that you can imagine. Everyone said so, they were the best.)
One of my good friends went to England a few months ago and brought me back some...oh, they make me happy just to think of them...she brought me some HOBNOBS! They are so good!
I still have two left...can you tell that I have tried to keep them as long as I can? I just looked it up and Hobnobs are the third most popular biscuit over there! Let's see, I think I read that Jammie Dodgers and Custard Creams are the top two but some say that the Rich Tea and the Ginger Nut are tops. Me? I love them ALL! I don't have favorites when it comes to English biscuits. (Jaffa cakes, Kay? Yes, please!)
When we come back from England, we are loaded down with teabags, chocolate and biscuits!
We would not have been able to bring these back in the heat we are having these days...we have had many days with our temps over 90 degrees!
What is your favorite cookie/biscuit? Do tell me, you know I want to know!
P.S. No cookie/biscuit companies are sending me anything for this post. HOWEVER, if a company happens to read this and they WISH to send me boxes and boxes, I will happily accept them, even if they are half melted when they get here!
It was cooler this time last year when the magnolias were blooming...
