Recipe of the Week: Floral Empire Biscuits

I don’t think the Empire biscuit is as popular anywhere else as it is in Scotland. They are sold in most wee bakeries – you would struggle to walk more than 500 yards in Glasgow without seeing one for sale. As a kid I was only in it for the sweetie on the top (I […]
