An Aussie version the the Penguin biscuit, is probably the best way to describe it.
(Do they still make them? Haven't seen them in ages - Penguin biscuits, that is....)

@doobykat yes I had a penguin yesterday, they do them in different flavours now!

Fave biscuits are kitkats! But I also like ginger nuts and hobnobs and any other biscuit apart from custard creams!

@sim oh Tim Tams, they are good, discovered them while in NZ!

A quick look on Wiki and it seems that yep, they have always been produced by Nestle

Fig rolls :cake: Hugh fernley witteringbloke has a really good digestive recipe they are a bit fiddly to make but really yum

River cottage spelt digestive biscuits
We make these in two slightly different ways: follow this recipe for a digestive to serve with cheese, or reduce the sugar to 100g to create a slightly less sweet biscuit for pâtés. Makes about 30.
250g spelt flour
250g medium oatmeal
250g cold, unsalted butter, cubed
125g soft light brown sugar
a generous pinch of salt
1½ tsp baking powder
10-20ml milk
Put everything except the milk in a food processor and blitz until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Tip into a bowl, then add just enough milk to bring it together into a firm dough. This uncooked dough will keep in the fridge for several days (as long as the milk in it remains fresh).
This makes a very firm, solid dough and, if it's been in the fridge, it will be rock hard, so let it come to room temperature before rolling. Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/gas mark 3 and lightly grease two baking sheets. Put the dough between two sheets of clingfilm or baking parchment, and roll out until 2-3mm thick. Work quickly because it can become sticky as it warms up (return it to the fridge for a bit if this happens). Use a plain round cookie cutter to stamp out the biscuits. Arrange on the baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes, until pale golden and just beginning to turn brown around the edges. Leave to cool, then store in an airtight container.
