I spent a summer in the UK a few years back and practically lived off McVities Digestive Biscuits. Cheap and easy to find in the UK, fairly expensive and hard to find in the US, so I decided to make them myself. I was not able to find a recipe that tasted enough like them, so I made my own recipe. They have been really popular with other McVitie lovers. Hope you like them, too!

"Shortbread cookies originate from Scotland where they are served with tea especially at Christmas and New Year.
The buttery cookies made their way to Australia during the Scottish migration in the 1800s and still remain one of the most popular treats today.
There are different types of shortbread, some containing more butter than others. This particular recipe is for a basic shortbread base which means a little less butter.
The shortbread is topped with an incredibly easy to make and delicious passionfruit icing."
I am not sure how many cookies this makes but I said 12 servings ( so could make 2-3 dozen)
You may know these tender, not too sweet cookies by their name Fig Newtons, but in reality the recipe is of Egyptian design. This version combines the traditional flavours of North Africa with the whole grain cookies of today.
You can either bag the mix for future use or go ahead and make the brownies. You can also use a high quality cocoa to improve the flavor. Customize it with chips, nuts or whatever you like. I found this on a blog for saving money. Making it yourself should save you about 80- 85%
This is a great no-sugar-added recipe that still has natural sweetness from the fruit and absolutely no artificial sweeteners. It's also potentially vegan, depending on if you use oil instead of butter. Most importantly, these are really tasty, and completely guilt-free!
5 cookies just 50 calories, loaded with protien. This is a great mid morning or afternoon stnack. Shaun T, creator of the Insanity Workout created this recipe and it was on Dr. Oz. Scale the recipe to make more.
I tried looking for the "perfect" brownie recipe, but they all were not to my expectations, they either had too much or too little of something. I think I found a good balance with the ingredients which is sure to deliver you the most rich "can't stop eating them" brownies. Please feel free to make suggestions and offer advice for alterations.
This is the brownie recipe we use most. It is from Nigella Lawson's "How To Be a Domestic Goddess". My Dear Daughter who is not a Goddess in the kitchen sure has success with this recipe. So I thought I would share this recipe with you in case you to have a domestic challenged loved one in your kitchen.
