So easy to make, just make sue to leave enough space between each biscuit when you cook them. My first batch became a giant biscuit, but there were no complaints from the kids - 27 Oct 2011


This is a fab. Made these with my 4 year old son he loved every minute of it as well as the end products ;o). Like previous review had to add a little more flour, however the biscuits are yummy. Thanks for sharing.... - 06 Nov 2014
