• The Tenuous Purpose

    This Blog is built - not, as some might expect, on a flimsy whim but on a strong and single minded principle.

    That principle concerns Biscuits and their position in the world.

    We are really very keen on biscuits.
    As are many of you out there.
    We think.

    We wish to create an archive of Arrowroot, a backlog of Bourbons and a catalogue of Chocolate Fingers. Anybody can contribute an entry - or dispute somebody else's - provided they are not dull.
    Even Americans who perhaps don't really have the heritage of biscuitry that we are fortunate to have here.

    Or maybe they do and we are unaware of the full glory of the cookie.

    We realise that this whole subject is admirably and concisely dealt with by that excellent and unbeatable website A Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down. Our feeble efforts will be as the kicking of a gadfly in the face of their wisdom and experience but we hope that we may have a small contribution to make.

  • The Synod of Biscuitry

    James Alexander-Sinclair of Blackpitts
    Gardener, Blogger, Journalist, Lecturer etc, etc. Much of his life is spent loafing around other people’s gardens issuing directives and generally cluttering up the place. However, like the great Mr Kipling, he does (occasionally) make exceptionally good gardens. (Although even Mr Kipling messed up a bit with the Carrot and Walnut Mini Classics.)

    Mark Diacono of Otter Farm
    He does sterling work growing many inappropriate plants in Devon. He dedicates a great deal of time and effort nurturing a plethora of plants that are (mostly) totally unsuited to our climate. His is a life of such extreme eccentric dedication that to start a Blog about Biscuits seems perfectly normal. He treads gently in the footsteps of people like the great William Buckland,a professor of Geology who claimed that he could tell location by tasting the local topsoil.

Pizza The Action

No. 1 — Domino’s Oreo Cookie Pizzastoryimage_1dominoscookiepizza

Sure, everybody loves pizza. But what do you do when traditional pizza has lost its magic? How do you retain your love for it when all the fatty toppings — pepperoni, buffalo chicken, Alfredo sauce and so forth — just aren’t satisfying you the way they used to? If you’re Domino’s, you take one of the world’s least-healthy cookies and couple it with large doses of frosting to cover an entire pizza crust. Were Dr. Jack Kevorkian still practicing his trade, he’d surely use consumption of the Oreo pizza as his preferred method of assisted suicide. Truly, the only way this sucker could be any worse would be to put it in blender with a bucket of cheeseburger fries and then pour the resulting mixture into a bowl and then cover it with processed cheese.

Which, come to think of it, hasn’t been tried yet. Anyone want to drive me to the patent office?

  1. In Scotland they’d do as you suggest, then deep fry it as well 😉

  2. Dear god, I HATE pizza; why sully the good name of the biscuit by trying to turn it into a bastardised lump of edible heart attack?!! Darn Americans, damn Italians too, damn it all, I need a jaffa cake.

  3. I quite enjoy the odd oreo but why on earth would you couple it with a pizza base and icing?

    Surely this is just wrong?

  4. All wrong….

  5. If the pizza dough could instead be made of crushed oreos, glued together with some butter then pressed into the pan as the crust to be covered with icing as the sauce then decorated with chocolate chips as the pepperoni, that would be a worthy nominee for most caloric dessert ever made.
