Spiced golden syrup biscuits that are sliced into bars. Spiced with cinnamon and cloves then loaded with golden sultanas, these make a mean afternoon tea.
Altered ingredient amounts. These were very good-- I'd just make a few changes to make them even better! Add about 3/4 cups extra flour to make sure the dough is "dough-y" enough, and chill for half an hour before trying to shape it. Make sure the coffee is strong so you get the flavour, and I added some ginger to add a kick to it. Also, these biscuits spread and puff up, so make sure there's about 2 inches between the long strips on the biscuit sheet-- I'd use two separate sheets. - 29 Sep 2008
Thank you so very much for a recipe that really brings me back to my childhood. My mother used to buy these biscuits at for me the Danvers Port Bakery in Massachusetts as a treat! These are even better! I love love love them! What more can I say! I asked many people if they had heard of them and they had never heard of them. - 29 Sep 2008
WOW! These are FANTASTIC!!! I love hermits, but I've never made them with coffee before. Holy cow did these receive a great amount of praise from the 20 people I served a double batch to. They were all gone. A definate keeper!!! - 29 Sep 2008
