Admit it – you love the British because they take biscuits seriously… the same can be said about the Americans and their adoration of cookies (even just the unbaked dough!) – but in all fairness – every country has some kind of sweet treat that goes PERFECTLY with a cup of tea (or coffee) any time during the day (because it doesn’t just have to be served mid-morning/afternoon, right?)
Interestingly enough – If you said “biscuit” to an American – they would think of a flour based soft cake like treat (a bit like a scone) – while to a Brit, they would picture a dry and hard texture treat.
So what kind of biscuits/cookies do you like baking? The 5 that we mention below are from our Belgian bloggers who have made us drool over their traditional (tea biscuits) and not so traditional versions.
