 The oldest biscuit in Britain? and From North Wales? well, It’s called the Aberffraw biscuit (sometimes Aberffraw cake or Teisen Berffro) and is said to originate from 13th Century Anglesey and also appeared in the famous Cassell’s Dictionary of Cookery in 1892.

It’s a scallop shell shortbread and legend has it that a Welsh king was holding court in Aberffraw – his wife was walking on the beach there and, spotting a pretty scallop shell, asked for a cake to be baked in the same form. And so the Aberffraw biscuit was born

The flavour of these biscuits is inspired by another famous Welsh staple… Bara Brith – a rich fruit loaf made with raisins, tea, and spices. The result is a sweet and spicy shortbread, with a 12 months' shelf life.
