Make Your Own Biscuits - So Much Cheaper Than Buying Them

I absolutely love biscuits or cookies. For me, a cup of tea is not complete without a biscuit or two (or three) to go with it. Unfortunately I haven't come across any biscuit or cookie recipes that are particularly healthy. If anyone has any healthy recipes, particularly for biscuits that stay crisp then please do share them with us.


Adapt your biscuits and cookies with alternative ingredients

Once you have a basic biscuit recipe that works for you then you can adapt it to suit all sorts of ingredients. For example, if you haven't got choc chips on hand then you can substitute chopped nuts instead. A cookie that has cornflakes and sultanas in it can easily convert into a coffee and pecan biscuit.

I tend not to make biscuits that are rolled out purely because they take more time to make but I must admit they do stay nice and crisp. I have a tendency to make drop biscuits which are spooned directly onto a baking tray.
