I found this recipe in a budgeting booklet years ago in New Zealand. These biscuits were lifesavers when the money was tight. They are cheap to make, easy to bake and delicious to eat and have become a family favourite. This is definitely a recipe I intend on passing on to my children. Hope you enjoy these biscuits.
