Everybody loves Bourbon Biscuits – the sugar, crispy treats that are packed with lusciously creamy and buttery chocolate icing! We all have our favourite brands and hunt the store-shelves for it. But today, allow us to share a secret with you.


Bourbon Biscuits are not so complicated that they cannot be made at home! In fact, homemade Bourbon Biscuits will beat even your favourite brands hands-down, partly because of the fresh flavour and partly because of the thrill of having made your favourite treat all by yourself.

These biscuits are sure to be a family favourite and a perfect gift to make and give for festive occasions like Diwali , Christmas and Raksha - Bandhan .
