Honey and lemon balm biscuits

    1 hour 30 min

    These delightful honey and lemon balm biscuits are just wonderful at tea time and are usually a staple in our household. Tried and tested many times over, these biscuits are fantastic with fresh lemon balm from the garden and are also excellent with lavender in place of the lemon balm, should you fancy a change.
