British biscuit = American cookie

Have you tried any of these? If so, which is your favorite? One of the things I enjoyed while traveling in England (and then later living there), was heating up the electric kettle in my hotel room for tea and discovering which biscuit they left for me that day. I think my ultimate favorite is the Hobnob. Luckily, we can find most of these at World Market. Cheers.


Love this!
