    These spice biscuits are really spicy! They are even better after a week when the flavours have had a chance to blend.

    almost perfect, you just need the glaze on them to make this authentic. mix 2 parts powdered sugar and 1 part milk together. warm in microwave about 45 sec dipped slightly warm cookie and allow to harden on wire rack.  -  29 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    none of these recipes mentions adding a slice of apple inside the air tight container. Once shriveled keep replacing it for six weeks. Apples help soften the cookies and ferment/blend the spices. They are delicious. Then powder sugar the tops  -  04 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

I cut the recipe by one fourth the first time!!!  -  22 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
