    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


    This is pretty good, but it's not one of my favorites. It kinda tastes like a ginger snap, but it has a lighter flavor.  -  23 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
