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 have used for years.
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.
