Biscuits. Another great British tradition. Put the kettle on, brew a pot of tea and settle down with a good plate of bickies. Now that I live in America I’ve had to get used to calling them cookies. Biscuits here look more like English scones. Delicious, but you can’t dunk them in your tea or coffee like you can real biscuits.

I thought it would be great to put together a book of all the traditional British biscuit recipes I could lay my hands on. Of course, not many people make their own these days, especially as there are so many wonderful varieties to be found in the supermarket. But they really are so easy to make and so yummy. Great fun to do with the kids on a rainy day.

Twenty delectable delights to choose from:-
Shrewsbury Biscuits​
Ayrshire Shortbread​
Almond Shortbread​
Petticoat Tails​
Garibaldi Biscuits​
Cornish Fairings​
Abernethy Biscuits​
Jam Thumb Biscuits​
Bourbon Biscuits​
Custard Creams​
Anzac Biscuits​
Treacle Bites​
Rich Tea Biscuits​
Savory Cheesy Biscuits​
Coffee Biscuits​
Arrowroot Biscuits​
Jammie Dodgers​

Mehr über den Autor

I grew up in the south of England at a time when most Mums still stayed at home and looked after the house and kids. My Mum loved to bake and I guess I inherited my love of cooking from her. She was happiest in the kitchen, apron on, rolling pin in hand, and us kids around the table chatting and shelling the peas my Dad grew in the garden.

Now I live in the United States and I love to surprise my guests with traditional British food such as Bubble and Squeak, Toad in the Hole, and the one pudding guaranteed to cause many frivolous remarks, Spotted Dick. My American friends love to make good-natured fun of British food along with my "funny" accent!

I am a huge animal lover, which caused me to become a vegetarian many years ago. But I still cook meat for guests and for my dog. I also love art, reading, music and needlework.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well-rounded selection of recipes 30. Mai 2012

A British biscuit is called a cookie in the United States so this cookbook is going to be one of my favorites. I LOVE cookies. They are probably my favorite dessert or snack. I could eat cookies for breakfast and noshing on a few digestive cookies with tea could be breakfast. You will find a recipe for Digestives in this cookbook.

Other recipes you will find in this cookbook include:

Flapjacks (a cookie not a pancake)
Petticoat Tails
Custard Creams
Anazac Biscuits
Rich Tea Biscuits
Savory Cheese Biscuits

There are a few photos in this cookbook and an active table of contents making it easy to select the recipe you want.

Some of the recipes are not clear about what ingredients to use. In the recipe for Rich Tea Biscuits syrup is used as an ingredient. It is not clear what type of syrup is to be used. In another recipe self-rising flour is listed with all-purpose flour suggested as a substitution. Unfortunately the two flours are not interchangeable. Self-rising flour contains leavening agents while all-purpose flour does not. This would be a better book if the ingredients called for were explained better in the recipes.

Recommend with caveats given.

4.0 von 5 Sternen British "biscuit" = American "cookie" 5. Juni 2012
Von Tracy Rowan - Veröffentlicht auf

As I plan to review four of Ms. Romsey's cookbooks, I think it best to cover the major issue I have with all of them right at the beginning: Measurements and ingredient names. For the British marketplace, it's not a problem. British cooks will understand things like cornflour and caster sugar; Americans will have to look them up. Volumes can be a problem. British cooks will know that the pints of liquid referred to are Imperial pints. Americans will have to do some stepping to come up with the equivalent measurements for some ingredients. (For the record, an Imperial pint is roughly 20 liquid oz. Thus 1/4 of a pint will be about 5 oz in the UK, not 4 as it is here in the US.) Ingredients listed by weight are simpler, and any cook who routinely uses a scale for baking will have no problems with these. However I think that it would have been an enormous help to all cooks if the measurements had been converted to metric.

The other issue I have, and I don't think this is necessarily a problem with Ms. Romsey's formatting, is that pages will sometimes repeat on my Kindle. I'll go through the first page of a recipe, turn the page and find most of the information repeated on the next page. I don't know what causes this issue, but be aware of it as you work. It can be confusing if you're in the middle of a recipe.

As I indicated in the title of this review, it's good to remember that what we're dealing with here are what Americans refer to as "cookies" or in the case of the savory variety, "crackers." Here in the US, a biscuit is closer to a British scone, so if that's what you want, you might want to check out Jane Romsey's scone cookbook, also available on Kindle.

I have to say I was thrilled to find a recipe for wholemeal or digestive biscuits. They're a guilty pleasure of mine since they're about midpoint between sweet and savory, so they're great for snacking or with cheese or cold meats, fruit or vegetables. I was also happy to find another version of gingersnaps, aka "gingernuts" which are easily my favorite cookies.

Moving beyond my favorites I found some tremendously interesting recipes, for instance, Cornish Fairings which appear to be a kind of spice cookie, which require the baker to drop the baking sheet on the counter at about mid-point through the baking in order to make them spread and crackle on the top. How on earth was that technique discovered?

The savory cheese biscuits sounded delicious until I got to the crunchy peanut butter. The jury is still out on that one since I don't have the rest of the ingredients to bake up a batch. To be honest, my initial instinct was to substitute cream cheese, but then I remembered peanut butter crackers and thought perhaps I'd try it Romsey's way first.

There are a lot of very delicious-sounding recipes in this book. There are also additional points of confusion here. I note that Jammie Dodgers call for "cornstarch." I was under the impression that cornstarch was referred to in the UK as "cornflour." The use in the recipe doesn't give me much of a clue either. At this point, your guess is as good as mine.

The author states that she is bringing her 'British Biscuits' to the America that she lives in now. If this is the case she should have made the effort to translate measurements to American standards -- dry and liquid 8oz cups, level tsp,level Tbsp,etc. She also needs to Americanize the terminology. Having had English parents I am familiar with some, but certainly not all, of the terms. I have found that Lyle's syrup and Bird's custard are very difficult to find. Their flavors are unlike any substitutes.

The author did include a variety of popular biscuits, but I am afraid that readers who attempt the recipes will not get the hoped-for results.

I got a couple of these kindle books by Jane Romsey for the occasional tea party or overnight guests. I have been known to have tea parties with friends done the British way (or what Americans think is the British way!). Scones and biscuits and little tea cakes are must haves! I found this book quite useful and I feel like I am serving authentic treats!
