2021 Christmas Biscuit Box from above

Homemade biscuits at Christmas were never really something that Hannah & I grew up with. Mince pies? Yes. Christmas pudding? Yes. Yule log? Yes. But homemade Christmas biscuits?  Virtually never.

Now, don’t get me wrong, Hannah and I definitely ate biscuits at Christmas –in fact Fox’s Christmas Biscuit Box still makes a regular appearance at our family festivities but homemade biscuits at that time of year just weren’t something that we did.

And it wasn’t something that my friends’ families did either. We were all very happy basking in the glow of dried fruit and mixed peel and didn’t really think anything of it.

But then I moved to the US…and here the holiday cookie is everything.

Not only does every family seem to have the tradition of baking some sort of cookie together in the run up to the big day –but cookies are a super food, used to fuel Santa as he travels miles and miles around the globe in just one night.

Holiday cookies, it seemed, were something that had been missing from my life and I knew that needed to be rectified!

Making up for lost time and determined to try every festive morsel on offer, I began to realise that holiday cookies were so much more than just another biscuit.

Yes, I knew that families would often bake them together but I had assumed this might just happen one frantic December evening while trying to simultaneously wrap 10000 gifts.

But no, that was not the case!

Many of my friends’ families put aside a special day in December to bake together as a family using recipes that had been handed down through the generations.  They would don festive jumpers, ensure the Christmas tunes were rolling and the hot chocolate or egg nog were flowing, and Christmas cookie baking would become a family event that was not to be missed.  

And what’s more…they didn’t stop at just one type of cookie, but instead would often create a whole host of varieties ensuring that everyone’s flavour needs were met.

And it was then that I discovered the ultimate Christmas gift…a Holiday Cookie Box!

Yes, that’s right, you heard me!!  It’s a box filled with delicious cookies, but more than that, it is filled with love, tradition and nostalgia and makes the perfect gift for any occasion.  

The Jolly Festive Christmas Biscuit Box: A New Tradition

So I decided I needed to get in on the action and bring this concept into my own Christmas celebrations. And so, for the last four years I have been making Christmas Biscuit Boxes for anyone who will take one from me!

Seriously, what better way to spread Christmas cheer than with a homemade gift filled with sugar?!

And this year I have taken my love for biscuits and my new-found tradition one step further, and have created the Jolly Festive Biscuit Box for you so that you can bring this tradition into your homes.

Every year the box will feature 4 different biscuits ranging in flavours and textures to ensure that everyone is happy!

And this year, let me tell you, these biscuits are winners!

Jolly Festive 2021 Christmas Biscuit Box: The Selection!

Each one of these biscuit recipes has been carefully developed and selected to ensure that the flavours within the Christmas Biscuit Box are balanced.

Do you like nuts? It’s got them! Chocolate? It’s got that too! More of a fruity person? Don’t worry, there’s an option for you as well!

Even the pickiest of biscuits palates should be satisfied with the selection here and if you want to switch out one of ours for one of yours then absolutely go ahead; that’s the way traditions are made and continued.

Rich, silky, indulgent Nutella sandwiched between thin peanut butter biscuits, these are the grown-up version of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup and are absolutely delicious.

Nutty, crumbly and buttery. The flavours are simple but not to be underestimated and give a little bit of an update to a traditional shortbread.
