Tea Biscuits – The Anytime Rolled Biscuit

Tea Biscuits is a night time snack I use to share with my dad when he was alive. He would sit in the kitchen while I made them. Most times I made them from a boxed biscuit mix, however I prefer to make them myself.  Below is the recipe I make.

My dad liked to have his with a slice of cheddar cheese on top, where I liked to cut mine open and put some butter and some jam. We would sit down at the kitchen table and have a cup of tea and chat.

What’s your Flavor?

There are so many different variations of tea biscuits you can make using my basic biscuit recipe.
