Empire Biscuits

Empire Biscuits

Empire or Belgium biscuits are the rather patriotic names for a sandwich of two shortbread biscuits stuck together with ( raspberry ) jam and topped with icing and a cherry or a jelly tot sweet. The biscuits are a version of Linzer biscuits or cookies and were renamed after the German Army invaded Belgium in World War I.
