Biscuits/Cookies are a staple in our house. We never buy a packet of biscuits from the supermarket. Nowadays I like to bake my own and I love to make up my own flavours as well. For me, the flavour of a biscuit and the crunch is always the best part. Therefore I always try to make the biscuits/cookies so tasty and extra crunchy.
The best way to make biscuits/cookies crunchier is to put them into the fridge before they are baked. When the cookies is in the fridge the fat solidifies and this makes them harder. Once they are transferred to the oven when they are cold they will then spread less and harden more. That’s how the biscuit/cookie is so crunchie and delicious. We love these sweet treats and we hope you do too.

Orange and Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits/Cookies were yummy and we really enjoyed this batch. They make a tasty after meal treat or a great mid morning/afternoon snack. My son Ted took these biscuits to school in his lunch box. So they are a great treat to take with you as well. However you decide to eat these biscuits/cookies, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
