    Wholemeal Sweet Biscuits

    I am a big fan of McVitie’s Digestives Biscuits. I love the texture of those biscuits. I didn’t know that Digestive Biscuits originated in Scotland and McVitie is a Scottish biscuit maker. ‘If it is Scottish, I might try making Shortbread Biscuits using Wholemeal Flour, so that I would make something similar to the Digestives …

    Pumpkin Scones

    All my Scone recipes are based on Auntie Lorna’s Scone recipe. I needed to alter the amount of Milk for these scones because I added 1/2 cup pureed Pumpkin. It is a coincidence that these Pumpkin Scones have a strong resemblance to the famous coffee shops’ scones. I have never been to those coffee shops …
