These are my all time favourite biscuit. The recipe comes from my maternal grandmother. I have very fond memories of going on summer holidays to her house and enjoying snacking on these incredibly tasty treats. Crunchy on the outside and chewy in the centre - though be careful, they're addictive and the whole batch will be gone before you know it!
Something else. You can also use baking paper instead of heavily greasing the tray - my grandma swears by the greasing but they turn out just fine on baking paper and don't make as much mess - it's up to you. It usually depends how lazy I'm being as to whether I'll grease or line the trays... - 29 Mar 2010
Fab recipe - thanks for sharing. I also make them with dried apricots. Just fantastic as they are here! thank you granny. Have always loved chewy cookies - home made. - 23 Jan 2012
