The Effie's Story

Behold the Biscuit - Our story begins with a family recipe for oatcakes that people love for their nostalgic appeal. Effie's Homemade biscuits are lightly sweet with a hint of salt, a crisp bite, and the flavor of toasted grains. Enjoy our biscuits on their own, with a cup of coffee or tea, with fine cheese, or your favorite spreads.The first bite of an Effie’s biscuit is a moment of pure delight. Lightly sweet with a bright finish of salt, they’re more refined than a cookie, more dynamic than a cracker. Savor on their own or as a perfect companion for tea and coffee.
