I think that's a trademark name and the hole in the top biscuit is round or heart-shaped. However, that type of cut-out biscuit has been around for a long time. I wrote a recipe in one of my books for hearts and diamonds made with a redcurrant jelly and curd cheese filling and clubs and spades made with a cocoa and syrup filling.

It's a while since I've eaten one. I wonder which biscuit I was thinking of???? Those iced round ones with a hole in the middle?

Anyway, I'm always in the one per cent wink wink
