Love these - thanks I had to add more flour to the dough it was wet and not crumbly at all, used different flour approaching use before date so maybe that was my problem Tasted the biscuits and they weren't tasty at all (no sugar in the dough unlike other biscuits I have made) anyway I carried on to the end and I'm glad I did! The butter icing is so sweet the biscuits don't need sugar added to the dough but I will sprinkle them with caster sugar again. I also needed to add more icing sugar to the butter icing it was a bit runny and ended up keeping biscuits in a container in the fridge to stiffen the icing, next time I'll use a bit less butter. Lovely, will make these again. - 28 Mar 2016
These are great cookies that I've been making for years. I think the recipe should say 'roll to 1/8th of an inch in thickness' as opposed to 1/2 (which would give you really thick cookies). Sometimes the dough is too dry to roll easily- feel free to add as much cream as necessary to get a dough of good rolling consistency- otherwise, the cookies will have a tough texture. Also, MAKE SURE to prick the cookies! One time I didn't, and they blew up like balloons. - 09 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were so good. I understand what the other reviewer was saying, but these are tea cookies so they should not be too sweet. We really loved them! - 23 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
