These were great!

I haven't had a lot of experience with biscuits, but thee were easy and went down a treat both at home and at work.

Keeping this on hand as a basic biscuit recipe and looking forward to playing with flavours and fillings. Next batch, I'm adding some Milo!

Thanks for this recipe - Highly recommended :)
