Harkening back to my childhood… my absolute favorite cookies have always been digestive biscuits.
Me: Digestive biscuits are a British tea biscuit. They are also known by the more palatable name “sweet-meal biscuits.” Does that make you more comfortable?
Ok. So when I was a kid, my Grandmother would always have these at her house. Well, until I got there. I’m pretty sure that I polished off an entire box one time and then I got in trouble. What can I say? They are my FAVORITE. I even remember where they were in the kitchen (in the bread drawer with the metal thing on top…) Anyhoo…
I recently decided to attempt to make a batch of digestives on my own. It had never even crossed my mind that one could make digestives. I thought they fell from the sky. I used this recipe and took a few liberties.
Most importantly, I added chocolate.
They’re not the same as store-bought digestives but they’re good. Verrry good even. They are not too sweet (which I like) though I think they’d be too bland without the chocolate. They’re crisp like shortbread and go great with a hot cup of tea with milk. Yeah.
