Tea Biscuits

Programme Banner

The aim of this class is to introduce participants to a few of those biscuits that they will almost certainly have heard of but have possibly never considered making. Participants will work in pairs to produce all recipes
In this session you will make:

  • Brandy Snap Biscuits (an oldy but goodie, and often thought of as too ‘fiddly’ – NOT So!)

  • Florentine Biscuits (great for adding a touch of luxury with nuts, glace fruit and chocolate)

  • Biscotti (versatile and ever popular ‘twice baked’ biscuits)

  • Shrewsbury Biscuits (classic – orange scented biscuit with jam and that cut out top)

  • Palmiers (not quite a biscuit, but a quick treat to add using folded puff pastry and sugar)

Home baking is just so much better, go on, give your next cuppa a lift!

All ingredients are provided – bring yourself, some friends and laughter and learn to make new and exciting food in the first-rate kitchen facilities of NorthTec’s Apprentice Restaurant!
