    About this recipe: This recipe was made up by my friend Louise who has a son with a bad allergy to dairy. It makes 80 biscuits and they are very tasty. Be careful with the cloves as they can be overpowering.

    Tip

    AGA TIP - I cooked my biscuits in batches of 20 using the grid shelf on the floor of the roasting oven with the cold shelf on the second set of runners. They only take 8 minutes in an AGA.
