The addition of aromatic caraway seeds in this mildly sweet biscuit recipe is believed to aide with digestion and health.
Good, very lightly sweet cookies that are great with a cup of tea. My yield was more like 8-1/2 dozen, though, so be prepared for a lot of rolling and cutting - and sharing! - 23 Jul 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
well I'll tell you......As a Scotsman living in america, for the last 20 years. These Abernathies are as good as my Grannys (Gramma). - 15 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I had never heard of these, but after reading about them, I think this is probably a good recipe for them. I replaced the shortening with butter because I never keep shortening on hand, and I found other recipes for this with butter. Very easy to make. The caraway seeds are a bit odd in a cookie and I wonder if they could be ground up first so you aren't left with so many seeds in your teeth. :-P The cookie baked up nicely and has a nice flavor. - 13 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
