Simple biscuits without eggs

    Lovely biscuits without eggs. You can add different flavourings, such as almond instead of vanilla, and choose to make them plain or coloured. Or, try sprinkling with coloured sugar as soon as they're out of the oven.

    This biscuits are so yummy but I did add raisins in the mix and they were delicious and I have also done some with almond extract instead of vanilla haven't tried them yet but I'm sure they'll be delicious as well.  -  27 Nov 2013
