Make in an hour Tea Biscuits Recipe

Tea Biscuits, known as cookies in The United States are eaten throughout the world and African food is a unique fusion of many different cultures.

One influence over the centuries is that of European colonialists who colonized Africa from around the 1600’s to the 20th century. Anna Maria Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, is said to have made afternoon teatime a fashionable trend when she complained of "having that sinking feeling" during the late afternoon.

Hereafter, a pot of tea and a light snack in the middle of the afternoon became a part of European culture. One very popular light snack is that of the tea biscuit.
