For the Love of Marie
I just hurt the car. I was out for a lesson and as we got home and I parked I scraped the front on a pole. It made a noise. A horrible noise. Ugh. As soon as I got in the house I made a cup of tea into which I dunked a Marie biscuit.
I think Marie biscuits are somewhat undervalued in the biscuitty scheme of things, which is a great pity. No, they’re not flashy like your Iced Vovos and they’re not smooth and chocolatey like Tim Tams (both of which I love, don’t get me wrong). But they are delicious, albeit in a simple way and they’re very pretty. They also make excellent dunkers (which counts for a lot in my book), softening to just the right consistency yet retaining their core strength so as to avoid collapse. They’re one of the most dependable biscuits out there, just the thing to help set you to rights if they day isn’t going quite your way.
