Aberffraw biscuits are the oldest biscuits in Britain, and theyโ€™re from North Wales!

The Aberffraw biscuit -sometimes Aberffraw cake or Teisen Berffro- is said to originate from 13th Century Anglesey.

Itโ€™s a basic shortbread that comes in the shape of a scallop shell. Legend has it that a Welsh king was holding court in Aberffraw - his wife was walking on the beach there and, spotting a pretty scallop shell, asked for a cake to be baked in the same form. And so the Aberffraw biscuit was born.

The Aberffraw biscuit also appeared in the famous Cassellโ€™s Dictionary of Cookery in 1892.

Best enjoyed with tea.
