Equally at home in a fruit salad or an ice cream sundae, their only downside is that they are maddeningly hard to find in the United States. I think I picked up my most recent box at a local German deli that has a great selection of British and German groceries but I can’t swear to it!
The seal on the front of the box intimates a Royal warrant but actually says that they have been making these beauties in Carlisle since 1841. According to the internet, they used to have a warrant but lost it in 2012. They lost it for their water crackers — which are also excellent.
I think it’s very unfair for the water crackers to have tanked these wonderful little cookies. If you can find them, let me know how you did it — and buy a bunch.
They are also great with blueberries and lactose-free yoghurt.
