A Biscuit That Can Get You Drunk. FINALLY...

You know how it's really annoying that you can't pour wine down your throat whilst simultaneously cramming your face with biscuits? Problem over readers, problem solved:

Wine biscuits. Perfect for surreptitious staff-room drunkenness and for drowning your sorrows whilst wearing your over-sized mourning clothes.

  1. I wonder if these are still available. I shall have to do some investigating (because one can find anything on the internet, you know).

  3. Ok, I checked, and guess what--there are pages and pages and pages of internet recipes and places where you can order wine biscuits that someone else baked for you! My favorite is the King Arthur Flour Company's recipe. They sound pretty good. I may have to make some!
