The Best British Baked Goods for a Cold-Weather Treat

Words by Jane Sandwood.   As the weather gets chillier the closer we get to the holiday season, a warm cup of tea is the classic way to warm up frozen fingers. In the British way, a cup of tea and a biscuit can cure all ills, and everyone has their own favourite sweet treat. In fact, Brits manage to get through 141 million packets of biscuits collectively in a year. Whether it’s an old classic like a jammie dodger or a Jaffa cake, or something new and exciting like a macaron or tartlet, there are near infinite types and interpretations to choose from.
