If you are having a tea party with an old timey English woman, I have the cookie for you!
The latest snack I reviewed was Grandma Wild’s Award Winning Butterscotch Biscuits. If you are to believe the marketing hype behind these little cookies, these fancy cookies are to be enjoyed with a cup of tea and light helping of conversation.
These fancy cookies are based on a recipe that is over 100 years old. Apparently a woman named Annie Wild cooked these same cookies in her home bakery and the cookie’s popularity ran “Wild.”
Today these cookies are manufactured in England and can be found in fancy people stores everywhere.
As far as the taste, they are actually pretty good. This is a very firm and crunchy cookie that features hunks of hard butterscotch. In fact, this cookie is so firm that you’re going to want to make sure the old timey English woman you are having tea with inserts her full set of dentures.
The ingredients are things like wheat flour sugar, butter, and vegetable oil. There isn’t a single weird sciency ingredient, which kind of refreshing to see.
These cookies were pretty good, but they are just not all that great. Because of this, I'm giving them a middle of the road grade.
