Iced Gem Biscuits

Biscuits

Tiny (c¾ ins by ¼ins) round sweet plain biscuits of medium bake, each with a swirl of hard, coloured icing, approximately ½ins high on top. The little 'Gem' biscuits were first manufactured by Huntley and Palmer of Reading in the 1850's, the icing being added in 1910.


The Indonesian form of Iced Gems (Biskuit warna-warni)
much more vividly iced than the Reading original
