There is an Old French word, bescuit, that is derived from the Latin words bis (twice) and coctus (cooked) - OR "twice-cooked" - and this is because biscuits were originally cooked in a two step process: first baked, then dried out in a slow oven. At Mrs. Beaster's, all our treats are made using this method.
Beatrix the dog was born on Valentine's Day. On the drive home from the hospital she told us her name was Mrs. Beaster. One day we came home and found her baking in the kitchen. When we asked her what she was doing she said that she was making delicious biskits and that we should sell them. So we do!
Curious about the spelling?
Why DO we use a K in biskits?
Because......dogs are notoriously bad spellers - and Mrs. Beaster is no exception. ;)
