    HokiesMom's Note:

    Posted for ZWT6 - Great Britain Region. These are a traditional spice biscuit (known in the US as a cookie) that is served during holidays and in bakeries throughout Britain. If you don't have all the individual containers of spices - you may use a pumpkin pie spice mix or a combination of cinnamon and nutmeg.

      Great Christmas cookies filled with jam! I had all the spices but used regular sugar instead of the caster sugar. Thanks for sharing!
