Furniss Cornish Fairings Biscuits 3x200g. A lovely Triple Pack of these tasty biscuits. Furniss of Cornwall’s Cornish Fairings biscuit recipe has been handed down from generations. Using ginger, cinnamon, coriander and pimento to give that warmed, spiced taste – the rest is our little secret!
This pack contains a choice of 3x 200g Fairings: the original is lightly gingery with a lingering, melt-in-the-mouth finish; Stem Ginger & Honey – a classic combination that never fails to please; and Orange and Lemon – a classic warmly tangy flavour combination that captures the spirit of the grand old Cornish fairs. Delicately spiced biscuits with a moreish crunch, these West Country snaps are perfect for fairs and bake sales.
Cornish through and through, Cornish Fairings should be gently spicy, crunchy and very moreish. The name ‘Fairing’ comes from a present bought at the fairs which were held every year at Whitsuntide and Corpus Christi – a little gift for a loved one or a sweetheart consisting of a gingerbread, sugared almonds, cinnamon sticks or macaroons.

Cornish Fairings History
A ‘fairing’ was originally a treat sold at the seasonal fairs which popped up all over this green and pleasant county and Cornish Fairings have been produced in Cornwall for the last hundred years. They are therefore a step up from your regular everyday ginger biscuit.
Protecting what you love is only natural. In 2007, Furniss secured an official trademark to preserve Cornwall’s most famous biscuit. Now they’re the only bakery licensed to make Original Cornish Fairings™. If you find yourself eating only one then stopping, please check the pack…they might be imposters!
