24 regional biscuits

About the dish ...

These biscuits have to be traditional to a town, village or region in Britain. They can be sweet or savoury, The bakers would be judged on texture, flavor, originality and uniformity.

Paul Hollywood: "Don't be fooled - biscuits are difficult to make properly."

Prue Leith: "The biggest challenge is that we're asking the bakers to put their own stamp on these biscuits, but at the same time they must be recognisable. If they say that a biscuit is shortbread, then it should melt in the mouth. If they tell us it's a ginger snap, then it must snap!"
