"Good baking was the pride of our mothers and grandmothers, and it was unthinkable not to offer guests some freshly baked treat.  Unexpected callers and hungry children were welcomed by the scent of homemade biscuits baking, and delicious biscuits were always on hand when we dropped in on family and friends.  the variety was enormous from simple shortbreads to 'fancy' Monte Carlos - and the recipes would be swapped, compared and discussed over endless cups of tea.
Classic Biscuits gathers together some of the most well-known and best loved classic biscuit recipes. It includes favourites like Macaroons, Date Pillows, Kisses, Monte Carlos, Scottish Shortbread and many more.  These are practical recipes to be enjoyed again and again."
