The Great British Bake Off
Biscuit Week is my favourite of the Great British Bake Off themes. The look of Briony’s Apple Cider Biscuits made me drool.
The #GBBOTwitterBakeAlong is also back and for Biscuit Week, we chose to make shortbread biscuits because biscuits and a cuppa are one of the things we cherish about Britain. Whether Scottish or Cornish or Shrewsbury or what other regional spins these little balls of butter, flour and sugar are a delight.
Maple Walnut Shortbread Biscuits
We’ve put a North American spin on the classic shortbread biscuit recipe by using California walnuts and pure Canadian Maple Syrup. Since both our British and American heritage is represented, it brings a bit of personalisation to the recipe.
Decorated Shortbread Biscuits
Yes, of course, biscuits (and all food) is supposed to be beautiful to look at as well as taste delicious but not all of us have the talent or patience to be precise. We’ve iced our shortbread biscuits numerous ways depending on how much you want to impress. All of them are ready to be scoffed down with a glass of cold milk, hot coffee or cuppa.
