What are Bourbon Biscuits?

Along with Digestives, Custard Creams, and shortbread , Bourbons are some of the most popular biscuits which are frequently enjoyed across the pond. Despite their name, there is no alcohol involved. They are simply chocolate sandwich biscuits with a chocolate cream filling. 

The biscuit has a delicious chocolate flavour that balances well against the sweet and creamy chocolate filling. The rich chocolate flavour is balanced against the sweet and creamy icing layer.

The Bourbon biscuit is the fifth most popular biscuit in the UK to dunk into tea.  Bourbon chocolate biscuit | bourbon cream cookies made its appearance in India in the year 1955 by Britannia company.

Enjoy with a cup of tea!

Later in 1930, the former French Royal House of Bourbon renamed these as Bourbon Biscuits. These biscuits are the fifth most popular biscuits in the United Kingdom.

Any idea why there are holes in the Bourbon Biscuits? Well, the holes are there so that the steam escapes easily while baking without causing any cracks or breaks in the biscuits.
