Biscuit recipes to rival the best Great British Bake Off bakes

The Great British Bake Off contestants are taking on biscuit week tonight, with new judge Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood laying down three biscuit-themed challenges.

Biscuits will be bashed and sandwiched together and fortune cookies will be created. And if there's something we're very sure of, it's that someone will crumble under the pressure of biscuit week.

If the thought of biscuit week is making you keen to try your hand at baking your own batch of tea dunkers, you’ve come to the right place. From deliciously spiced gingerbread and beyond, try these yummy recipes to flex your baking skills.
