    Yes. Though, most of the time it was oatmeal cookies.

    No. Both of them were English. We call such things biscuits and we were not very much encouraged to eat them. I hate them anyway- perhaps in consequence.

    My mother did, at some point in the 60s, buy a biscuit-maker (a cylinder and piston for extruding biscuits onto a sheet through a die, in a variety of shapes, prior to baking them). But the most popular were cheese biscuits, which were very good, actually.

    My grandmother made tuna cakes.
    Tuna and corn meal made into a kind of biscuit.

    Nope. Never had a relationship with my grandparents. Not positive ones, anyway.

    My grandmother from my mom's side did, and my grandmother from my dad's side often made chocolate chip cookie bars.

    Don't remember grandmothers making biscuits but they probably did. Mom baked (and still does) biscuits every week. Sometimes chocolate chip, sometimes ginger, sometimes plain, sometimes almond sometimes coffee Delicious.

    I bake biscuits but not so often, perhaps once a month.

    My grandmother made sponge cakes every Sunday when we visited but I wasn't much of a fan. The other grandmother we didn't visit very of ten and I don't really remember her cooking anything.

    Yes.


    Hey now! No cookies is not a reason to hate your grandmothers. :eek::oops::(

    No, but she made me other things. Home cooked meals and the like. She wasn't a big baker. But she was a wonderful cook.

    No. But she did make the best cornbread in the world and from scratch.

    Never had any relationship with any grandparents, and where they lived some distance away, but according to at least one photograph we did meet one grandmother. Quite satisfied with mum's cooking and she would have scored 11 out of 10. :D

    Funny that I seem to be the only one that mentions both grandmothers.

    In my case, one was a good cook while the other stuck to roasts, which she could do well, having a good butcher, but she wrecked the vegetables by overcooking. A tragedy, since the vegetables were grown by my grandfather in their large garden and would have been delicious if sympathetically cooked.

    But that wartime generation had a different attitude to food generally, due to the scarcity of ingredients.
