'More refined than a cookie, more dynamic than a cracker.' This is how Effie's describes their line of scrumptious biscuits. We wholeheartedly agree: our cheesemongers created this assortment to showcase two of the most delicious flavors: Original Oatcakes and Pecan Biscuits. A box of each is paired with two cheeses, and a spread to top it all off.
When it comes to 'less is more,' Effie's has that concept down pat. This family-owned bakery focuses on producing just a few flavors of their classic biscuit recipe. One bite and it's clear why their small line has become so beloved. Following the British use of the word, these biscuits fall somewhere between being a cookie and a cracker. Perfect straight from the box, they're also lovely with tea, cheese, spreads, yogurt, for baking, desserts, and more.
Whether you're new to Effie's or a longtime fan, this assortment offers two different biscuits and a trio of pairings. Our Lead Cheesemonger picked her two favorites: the Oatcakes and the Pecan Biscuits, and paired them with two cheeses and a jam. The Goat Cheese Pyramid offers a light, tangy spreadable option, and the Red Hawk a rich, salty-savory one. Each cheese can go with either biscuit, and everything tastes great with a dollop of the Sour Cherry Spread on top. This collection makes a great cheese board on its own, or can be used to kick off a larger one. It's also a lovely gift and perhaps an occasion to have a British style afternoon tea.
