Lely’s Easter Biscuits
I think that one of the things we most like as kids is eating biscuits and dunking them in milk. I remember eating biscuits nearly every day, more so in the summer months when we habitually had tea on the beach.
Nothing beats the taste of tea at the beach , actually there really is nothing better than tea at the beach, especially when you come out (or were forced out as in my case) of the water, shivering cold – yet still arguing that you were not cold, and no!! You had no idea why you were shivering!! And sitting down to home made biscuits and a cup of warm tea. Pure and utter bliss.
My Grandmother had a plethora of biscuit recipes, but these scrumptious biscuits were an Easter Treat, and since Easter is usually accompanied by warm weather here in sunny Gibraltar, it also meant warm afternoons basking in the sun, and Tea at the beach.
I’m sure your kids (if you have any) or Grandkids will love helping you make these biscuits. They have a round braid like appearance which is really easy to do, plus the final icing and sprinkles (hundred and thousands as we know them locally) will ensure any child will want to get their hand dirty helping you make these.
They are soft biscuits with a perfect texture for dunking into warm milk or tea. However you decide to eat them, I’m sure you will enjoy them and will make your own memories just as much as I’ve made mine.
