    These biscuits are sooooo good. Good advice about not judging them by their colour. 10 mins is perfect for small teaspoon sized balls. Kids can help make them and love eating them. Love how the mix doesn't stick to your hands. Perfect little biscuit  -  17 Oct 2011


    OMG!!!! I have 4 children fighting me for them... It is the right balance of sweet and spice... My 8 year old son described it as a Tea cake in biscuit form... Fights occur over who got the bigger one, Easy to cook and so yummy.  -  15 Oct 2011


    These were very quick and easy to make and had a great flavour. The other "raters" were right in that you must cook these for 15 minutes, not 5.  -  21 Jul 2008
