    Altered ingredient amounts. When making the second batch I used flour under the juice glass instead of sugar, as the others were a bit sweet. I will also use less suger the next time I make these, as they were a little too sweet for me. Will maybe try some with almonds. - 02 Apr 2009

    These biscuits, were so nice but a little sweet. I ended up with more than the 24 yield stated, which I think is a plus. Will definately make these again. - 02 Apr 2009
