Since I wrote my last post I am seeing cookies everywhere. I bought the new Frankie magazine and it contains a feature on biscuits. And also today, I came across a set of desktop icons based on biscuits that made me smile so I am using them on my Mac (but they make me hungry!).
Anyway, what IS the difference between a cookie and a biscuit? I have always wondered. Is cookie just an American word for the British biscuit, leaving us Australians as usual in the middle and hopelessly confused? Or are cookies only allowed to be round and hand-baked? Here are more cookies, they are hand-knitted by the womens organisation I work with in Bangladesh and they will soon be available through Lark. These are definitely cookies, although the British version we are also making (which includes jammy dodgers, custard creams and party rings) I will probably call biscuits!
