It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourite?

And do you dunk them in your tea? (I try not to, because half of it always falls off into my cup .......)

Dark chocolate digestives are nice.

I'm torn between an Anzac or a white chocolate tim tam at the moment.

Plain digestives are great with chedder cheese though.
WB

Do tell us more about these Anzacs and white chocolate tim tams.

What are they?

I like those coconut shortbread ones, no idea what they are called though! Don't dip them into my tea, usually other peoples as it always tastes nicer that way for some reason!

I've recently discovered Border Biscuits' Dark Chocolate Ginger.

Sheer heaven.

Sol, a Tim Tam is best described as a penguin but with lots more variety, caramel, dark chocolate, black forest etc. An Anzac is a biscuit cobbled together by the soldiers in Gallipoli and has kind of become a favorite over here, I'll get the recipe and PM it to you.

I forgot to mention the Afgan bikkie.....now they are seriously lush.

Due to popular demand...

The Anzac:

1/2 cup standard plain flour
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup coconut
3/4 cup rolled oats
50g butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons boiling water

Mix together flour,sugar,coconut and rolled oats. Melt butter and golden syrup. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup. stir butter mixture into the dry ingrediants. If you want to be authentic, light a fire, rub lard on to the back of your shovel, place blobs of mixture onto shovel and whack it over the fire, if not. Place level tablespoons of mixture onto cold greased trays. Bake at 180 c for about 15 minutes or until golden, makes 20.

The Afgan:

200g butter, softened.
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups standard plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups cornflakes
chocolate icing.

cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flour and cocoa. Stir into creamed mixture. Fold in cornflakes. Spoon mounds of mixture onto a greased oven tray, gently pressing together. Bake at 180c for 15 minutes or until set. When cold ice with chocolate icing and decorate with a walnut if you can be arrsed.

Enjoy.

Hob Nobs or Hazelnut Maryland Cookies for preference. Oreos arent too bad.

Ah.... now for a bit of controversy! (Is it a cake or is it a biscuit?)

Jaffa cakes! But not only the 'normal' orange ones, but raspbery ones - you really cannot eat just one! :lol:

I know they have just been to court v the Tax Man about the cake/biscuit thing, but I can't remember the outcome!!
