    This is really a very delicious recipe. I enjoyed making these and find them nice and moist. I made some single biscuits but found that I could make two large ones in my tins I use for a sponge sandwich and today we have eaten all the single ones, my husband liked them too so I will be making more.  -  15 May 2016


    I made these exactly as per the recipe, no tweaks. Flavour is nice, but... Warning: 1) Use a baking tray with sides - this recipe does not make "biscuits" as such! 2) The teaspoons of mixture, rather than forming nice cookies, spread everywhere and flow over the edges of a flat tray. This leaves a very, very thin layer of mixture, once baked! These are more like flapjacks, but are definitely NOT biscuits!  -  01 Jul 2013
