    Really easy and quick to make. My kids loved making these and they were gone within minutes of coming out the oven. I will definitely be recommending these to friends! I used cookie cutters to pretty them up a bit and give them some shape.  -  20 Dec 2009


    A really easy recipe, great to make with kids. A lovely crispy biscuit with a gentle cinnamon flavour. I made these to hang on my christmas tree and they smell great - but as they taste good too, I am not sure how long they will last for!  -  13 Dec 2009
