It is a practice that I similarly adopted and in the early days of our marriage when money was tight, soda biscuits with jam and butter were an inexpensive treat to have on hand.
But biscuits are wonderful savoury indulgences as well and today's Foodie Friday recipe is one I guarantee you are going love having on hand for entertaining (or serving with soups, stews, chili's - whatever).
Tender, golden, crisp on the outside biscuits are infused with Herb and Garlic Boursin Cheese giving the interior crumb the most incredibly light, fluffy, and flavourful texture.
They are one of my standard go to's to serve as my bread course when entertaining and I'm super excited to share the recipe with you today.
