    These biscuits are absolutely gorgeous and ever so yummy. Incredibly easy to knock up. These are slightly thinner than regular cookies which makes them even better and aren't as heavy as normal cookies (Choc chip). I'm definitely writing your recipe down in my baking book and a big Thankyou for sharing a wonderful recipe  -  26 Aug 2012
