These are delicious biscuits..however, I found that the 'dough' was far too sticky with the amount of flour specified so I kept adding more till I was satisfied. They turned out great, light and buttery with a distinct vanilla taste. I'll definitely be making these again! - 26 Dec 2010
I'm so glad other reviews say it was too sticky, because I was worrying that it was just me!! I added more flower to make them less sticky and it worked fine. They turned out really nice, but next time I'll make mine a lot smaller. These will be used as Christmas presents - 23 Nov 2014
