    This recipe is quick, easy, and delicious. The biscuits (cookies) are super soft, even several days after I baked them. I didn't have sultanas, so I used regular black raisins. Otherwise, I followed the directions and got moist, chewy cookies that everyone in my family enjoyed.  -  11 May 2013


    I was wondering why no-one had posted a picture of this, and now I know why. It isn't the most attractive recipe. I think it would look better baked in a pan and cut into bars. Very tasty though. Mine were finished before I remembered that I had wanted to post a picture!  -  24 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My Husband and I both enjoyed these cookies and so did the men in his office. Many wanted the recipe for their own use. I did add a couple of things when I made them a little vanilla extract and a touch of salt, and a little more sugar. I did try icing a few with a cream cheese, brown sugar icing and that was wonderful too. They bake up very soft and yummy! Wonderful!  -  11 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
