A report out earlier in the week said that during lockdown, Britons spent over £9M on biscuits! That is a LOT of biscuits. I know that The Viking and I definitely contributed to the McVities fund. Funnily enough we very rarely have biscuits in the house for the obvious reason that they get eaten. We have zero self control, but during lockdown we became obsessed with digestive biscuits. It gave us a focus for teatime and felt like a little treat – and something to dunk in our tea of course!
We ran out a few weeks back and we sort of said to ourselves that we needed to stop anyway as they’re really not a brilliant habit to carry on with, however we had a craving a few days ago so I thought I’d have a go at making them. It turns out they’re super-easy to make and feel like very traditional baking. Really fast too, you’ll literally have biscuits to dunk in your tea in 25 minutes!
