About Biscuits:

The word 'biscuit' comes from the ancient French word 'bescuit', which is derived from the Latin 'bis' meaning twice and 'coquere', meaning cooked. Biscuits used to be cooked in a two-fold process where they were baked and then dried out in a low oven, hence the name.

Biscuits originated as a food stuff for people who spent a lot of time travelling, as they can be stored easily and they can last for several weeks if twice baked. It also used to be commonly believed that biscuits were good for the health and that they aided digestion, although we know that that is not quite the case today!
