What a great recipe - includes ounces measurements which made it even easier. I use pinhead for my porridge - don't be put off by them if you're not sure what they are. Followed recipe to the letter (except I didn't have any golden syrup, so used maple) and the biscuits were perfect. Very crispy, Thank you! - 26 May 2013
