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 white sugar
