A biscuit is a flour-based baked food product. Usually, a biscuit is hard, flat and unleavened. Biscuits are sweet and may be made with sugar, chocolate, icing, jam, ginger or cinnamon. Nowadays there are biscuits that can also be savoury and similar to crackers. Early biscuits used to be hard, dry, and unsweetened. In the earlier days, biscuits were evolved as a solution to the need for nutritious, easy-to-store, easy-to-carry, and long-lasting foods on long journeys, in particular at sea. It also had to be an item that didn't take up any much additional spaces which tend to reduce the time of travel. Also, daily consumption of a biscuit was considered good for health. The introduction of the baking of processed cereals including the creation of flour provided a more reliable source of food. Initially, biscuits were made in various ways. One such way was by using a thick paste of fine wheat flour, which was boiled and spread out on a plate. When it had dried and hardened, it was cut up and then fried until crisp, then served with honey and pepper. Another form was to cooking after bread, in a cooling bakers' oven.
