My hubby loves anything with lemon in it so I thought I'd try these out!
Firstly this recipe is so easy to make, one of the easiest mixtures I've made!
I tweaked the recipe only a little. As my other half loves lemon he asked me to add an extra half a teaspoon of lemon extract to the mixture. They turned out really well, made them an extra zingy!
Secondly I left the biscuits in for an extra minute or so as they were very sloppy. Apart from that they were very yummy - 12 Feb 2011
