Empire Biscuits, also known as Imperial Biscuits, German Biscuits or Double Shortbread, are sandwich cookies popular in UK, particularly Scotland. It is very similar to a linzer cookie, being formed by sandwiching 2 shortbread cookies together with raspberry jam. Nothing out of the ordinary till here, but then the cookie is glazed with a simple sugar glaze and decorated with half of glace cherry and that brings these cookies out of anonymity. Honestly, these biscuits shook my world the other day when I made them. I wasn’t expecting them to be this delicious, I thought they would turn out good, but nothing special and they blew me away.
