  • About

Raggie biscuits are a speciality of Fife and were traditionally eaten with a cup of tea, which is why they are also known as Raggie Teas.

Because they are not too sweet, they are also good with cheese. The distinctive prickled appearance of the biscuits is made in bakeries with a special stamp of ‘prickles’ or tiny holes, but at home, just use the tines of a fork. The holes not only look good, they prevent the biscuits blistering during baking.
