Who doesn’t like a biscuit. The word biscuit come from latin and means baked twice. Back in the old days of sailing the far wide seas the sailors were given hard tack and this was baked four times and made up to six months before sailing.
The biscuit, in various forms, stretches back through history first being found in China around 10,000 years ago, continue on through history they were found with the Assyrains, the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans.
These biscuits are only baked once but with a little butter and fresh from the oven they are truly divine.
