do you say biscuits or cookies?

I will admit that while I prefer to hear them called biscuits I have developed the habit of saying cookies! I think it depends on the style.....

For example in the container we have "Custard Biscuits" down in front and "M&M Cookies" at the back!

The "Custard Biscuits" are new to my repertoire. They are delish, a cross between short bread and the biscuit part of melting moments. In fact I have threatened to make them into melting moments. Recipe for them is here....

The M&M Cookies however are from a generic "cookie" recipe I found online yonks ago. I never did record the source, sorry.

I just make up the dough and the before they go in the oven I press some M&M on the top. You can add anything - choc chips, nuts.... you get the idea.

half a cup butter

half a cup brown sugar

half a cup white sugar

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 cup + 2 tbs flour

half a tsp baking soda

half a tsp salt

quart. tsp hot water.

Morning tea is looking good for this weeks lunchboxes!

Hi Jodie. I made Custard Biscuits (see my post) last night. I couldn't remember who had them on their blog but it was YOU! I didn't use your recipe so they didn't turn out as nice. Might have to make some more tomorrow :)
