These Orange and Lime Biscuits are just heavenly, they truly are. When people think of baking, sometimes all they can think about is ‘how much sugar is in the?’ or ‘how many calories are they?’ but for these I have adjusted the amount of sugar so they will be a bit more like ‘guilt free biscuits. You can use artificial sweetener but it’s just not the same. Like my friend Mandy says, if you want to spoil yourself, do it properly or don’t bother. You cannot help but to love these light biscuits, and it is possible to enjoy nice cakes, biscuits or puddings without so much guilt.
Have you ever wondered why we feel guilty when we eat sweet things? Well I don’t have the answer, although it’s usually due to us constantly trying to keep our weight down. Luckily I don’t have a sweet tooth, but my husband certainly has, so from time to time I do try to bake. Did I say I don’t have sweet tooth? Of course I do, but not as much as some people.
Here in the UK, afternoon tea is quite popular. It’s a very English thing to do here. I must say I do love the odd afternoon tea, and biscuits are often served with cup of tea.(or in my case, a cup of coffee) In my house I have to hide my biscuit barrel or my husband will find them and eat them. I don’t know any one who does not like a lovely biscuit with their cup of tea.
