After a long time, I was about to bake as my kids want something like cookies or biscuits for their snack. My families’ favorite biscuits from my hands are custard biscuits which I have shared with all of you recently, apart from this I came across Maida Biscuits recently from one of my friend Swapna. This Maida Biscuit is also known as Shrewsbury Biscuit and this is one of the signature snack of my hometown “Tuticorin”. I and my kids love this a lot. The taste was good. A perfect tea time snack.
