I don't know if it's cake or biscuit, but right now Scottish all butter shortbread is proving very moreish! Very Happy

Confused

I'm ambivalent about ginger snaps, I suppose they're okay, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy some. Same with macaroons.

If our shortbread is to your liking, and you can find any of this particular brand in your neck of the woods can I recommend Deans of Huntly? http://www.deans.co.uk/shop/
Their all butter shortbread is my favourite shortbread. Very light and tasty. Utterly delicious with a coffee. If you are on a budget, Patersons shortbread fingers are acceptable.

I can also heartily recommend Deans oat and coconut or oat and stem ginger biscuits. All really moreish.

That said, my absolute personal favourite biscuit of all time has to be the McVities Chocolate Digestive. Nothing better or more comforting on a cold day than a hot cup of strong tea and a chocolate digestive. Don't insult me by offering me anyone elses versions.

ALL KNEEL BEFORE THE MILK CHOCOLATE DIGESTIVE!!

Personally, I don't. Doing that can crush the biscuits! Laughing

ROFL

I cannot remember the last time I even saw a Dundee biscuit! Dundee cake, yes, but the biscuit seems to have disappeared even though we are less than 100 miles from Dundee.

Now if it's regionally named biscuits, then the Abernethy biscuit is lovely with cheese, particularly a strong cheese as the Abernethy is sweeter than say a digestive.

I live in Dundee and have never heard of a Dundee biscuit! Mind you I share Jo Brand's opinion of biscuits: No chocolate, no point. So the Dundee biscuit may be deficient in chocolate which is why it slipped under my radar.

My mother has a habit of putting all her biccies in a big tin which is fine most of the time but when she adds ginger nuts to the collection, everything comes out tasting of ginger nut.

As for favourites it's got the be the good old chocolate digestive and the chocolate hob-nob (non ginger nut flavoured).

My least favourite is the custard cream. Can't even bring myself to eat one, they are disgusting.

Thanks for that. Now I'm tempted to do some consumer research Smile So much for the New Year diet.

My Mum does that with cake. Everything ends up tasting like fruit cake. Eurgh.
