    these biscuits were brilliant and I will certainly make them again. They remained crisp in the tin until the last crumb. My granddaughter kept dipping in the tin and is eager for me to make some more.  -  13 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    My husband thought they were great and asked me to make more I find them quick and easy also not too sweet  -  01 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Nice easy recipe to make and I whipped them up in about 5 minutes one Sunday morning before anyone was up. Nice buttery flavour and difficult to resist as they came out of the oven. Will definitely be making these again!!  -  26 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
