Famous Cakes of Shrewsbury, UK
A Shrewsbury cake or Shrewsbury biscuit is a classic English dessert, named after Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire. A Shrewsbury biscuit normally has lemon or orange zest in the recipie or added dried fruit.
When i was younger, my mum used to make these with chocolate chips in them and would cut the dough into teddies and dip the bottom half in chocolate. As Shrewsbury is the town of flowers, i thought it would be fitting to use Rose water in my dough to give that flowery smell and taste. Rose water is an acquired taste so if you dont like it, go the traditional way of lemon or orange zest instead.

Sift flour, baking powder nutmeg (or mixed spice) in a bowl, Add the caraway seeds and sugar so all your dry ingredients are together.
Spread Flour on your board and put the dough on it. Work the dough just a bit more so it doesn't stick. Start rolling the dough out and cut into biscuit shapes. I had cut large ones and went a bit too thick on the biscuits. I changed the rest of the dough to small ones.
Put the cut out biscuits onto the greased baking trays, Make sure they are evenly spaced and put them in the oven.
