Yes, 29th May is National Biscuit Day!

So, go on, what’s your favourite? ☕️

Hang on, it’s the 30th today 🤦‍♀️
Damn and blast!

Never mind, have a blackberry bun instead when they've cooled.

The 29th might be national biscuit day but in my book it's Royal Oak Day, or oak apple day. It celebrates the restoration of the monarchy.

You could have told us yesterday FannyCornforth! Great excuse to over indulge grin

Rosie no worries, we can have Gransnet Biscuit Day! 🥳

Salti they look scrumptious!

MiniMoon too my shame, I haven’t heard of that, I’ll have to educate myself, thank you

For me it has to be Border Biscuits, dark chocolate and ginger biscuits. It is not safe to have a whole packet in my house, so I only buy them when DD and DGS are due to visit. They are subject to my late DM's rule (I.E. "NEVER DRINK ALONE)

Well, I did eat one rich tea biscuit yesterday. (I'm on a diet)

I had my two statutory early morning digestives at 0625! But I’m with Granny23 on the dark chocolate gingers! Impossible to leave them alone!

Every day is National Biscuit Day as far as I’m concerned. Ginger nuts, jammy dodgers, custard creams - anything!

Wafer type biscuits are my favourite.

Banana Oat.

Easy way to use up soft bananas. Adored by children.

Border dark chocolate and ginger are one of my favourites. I recently discovered Waitrose Duchy Shortbread biscuits. Sooo buttery. They melt in the mouth.

FannyCornforth, when my late mother was at school, if they all recited the following when the morning's school began the teacher would give the pupils a half day holiday.
" They 29th of May is Royal Oak Day,
If you don't give us holiday, we'll all run away."
The whole class had to remember and recite it.

I'm with you Granny23. Love 'em. Just had 2 as I think I missed last year's celebration as well as yesterday!

I made cookies for GC today - healthy and loved. Chickpeas, oat milk, muscovado, peanut butter, chocolate chips, oat flour.
