I had it in my mind to make butterscotch biscuits. I love shortbread. Really nice and crunchy. In my mind, the perfect base in which to experiment with flavours. I have ordered butterscotch chips but as they are coming from America it will take two weeks for them to get here. I really have no patience. I noticed some Green & Black's Butterscotch chocolate the other day and thought I might try with this. The result was not as butterscotchy as I would have liked but the little bits if honeycomb exploded rather satisfactorily in my mouth and the little bits of chocolate were lovely. All in all a nice wee biscuit easily made.
