    Used different ingredients. Instead of almond essence, try mixed spice or cinnamon for a great tasting biscuit  -  07 Mar 2009


    I found these a bit bland personally. Not enough flavour for my personal liking, but otherwise a great and very easy recipe to make with kids and I'll definitely be experimenting with flavours in this recipe in the near future!  -  11 Dec 2009
