(From King Arthur's Flour)These biscuits were developed during the latter part of the 19th century to increase fiber in Victorian diets, something that might be appealing to you at the beginning of the New Year. Digestive Biscuits are really just sophisticated graham crackers and are very simple to make. They are delicious with tea and fruit

Recipe Ingredients for Digestive biscuits

1 cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 cup Wheat Germ
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup cold milk

Recipe Directions for Digestive biscuits

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.

  2. Measure the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender, two knives, or your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour mixture. Toss in the sugar and enough milk to make a stiff dough.

  3. Knead this mixture on a floured surface until smooth. (All this can be done almost instantly in a food processor.) Roll the dough out to a bit more than 1/8 inch thick and cut into any desired shape. Traditionally, digestive biscuits are round and about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Place on greased cookie sheets, prick evenly with a fork, and bake until pale gold, between 15 and 20 minutes.
