after carefully following the recipe, the mixture was far too sticky to roll out, so had to hand mold the biscuits. Nice flavour, but not cripy, but chewy! - 31 Oct 2013


followed recipe but you need to add a lot more flour in than stated. once you got a pliable dough it is a great recipe, I dread to think how they would have turned out if I hadn't added more flour. - 15 Aug 2015
