    This recipes makes an absolutely delicious light, flavoursome biscuit. I wouldn't call it a shortbread but oh my it is very good all the same. I will be making this one again - thank you!  -  18 Sep 2016


    I decided to give this recipe a go instead of my usual one and was very disappointed. They were nothing like traditional shortbread biscuits. They were more of a cake consistancy rather than a biscuit. Maybe it was the fact that SR flour is used instead of plain.  -  21 Jun 2015
