Very dry dough. I made it work, but it definitely needs a drop of milk and possibly a little cinnamon to stop it being overly plain. - 29 Aug 2013


this recipe was easy. But I found I had to add a little milk to make the dough stick together, it was dry. I also added apples and cinnamon to mine: delicious! - 06 Feb 2013


well thought when we was weighing the ingredients seemed too much flour for the amount of butter and sugar so we had to add a little water as it was really dry. they were easy to do and baked well but crumbly. tip; use a little less flour than recipe as you can always add to it.but they were nice tasting though - 08 Mar 2016
