We recently stumbled across this recipe which we have since used for our consumer and corporate events, both times being very well received!

These moorish sandwich biscuits are the perfect afternoon pick me up, well suited to a cup of tea. They have the right balance of sweet and salty flavours as well as a soft texture from the peanut butter. The filling is a simple butter cream, so be as creative as you like with your decoration techniques!

We can guarantee they won’t last long in the biscuit tin!
