What better way to thank your bridal party than with some delicious biscuits. This  bridesmaid wedding biscuits recipe work great as thank you gifts, hen party nibbles or could even be used as ‘will you be my bridesmaid?’ invitation. Mix and match the flavours of the biscuits with different extracts to suit your taste – we think the floral flavour of rose water work perfectly for these. These biscuits can be made in advance and frozen (un-iced) for up to a month. Once iced, consume within a few days.
