      WOW, these are truly awesome and you are my hero! :) I spent a year living in Ireland when I was in school and fell in love with McVities Digestives. However being from Germany, I cannot get them easily back home. Ive been wanting to duplicate them, but never found the perfect recipe until now. Yours truly is it! The biscuits came out nearly PERFECT! My only mistake was to roll out the dough too thick, so that my digestives ended up a bit on the poofy side. Next time Ill fix that, though. Also I think adding a tiny bit of salt to the dough would make them even better.
      As I didnt have it on hand, I left out the shortening and I also used milk instead of half and half.
      THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for sharing this recipe with us, SerenaWeber!

      Thank goodness for someone who has read the McVities packet.<br/>McVities Digestives are nothing like Graham Cookies !!<br/>This recipe is wonderful. I added 1/2 Teaspoon of salt and a also found them a bit too sweet<br/>The dough is very 'gloopy' and difficult to manage.<br/>But the taste is wonderful.<br/>Congratulations.

      This recipe looks great! Can't wait to try them. Has anyone made them with Caramel? Any suggestions?

      My husband was born and raised in Rhyl, Wales UK -- We have spent quite a bit of money on McVities at Cost Plus World Market over the years. :) I made a batch of Bara Brith (delicious fruit tea bread, Welsh) this morning and thought, "Wonder if I can find a good digestives recipe..." My resident Welshman just declared this to be "top shelf"! I appreciated the advice to add salt -- we will lower the amount to 1/4 tsp next time, but otherwise this is a wonderful, authentic recipe! Oh, one more thing... I did this by hand as the recipe called for. I would not recommend a mixer or food processor. I think that a delicate hand, and not over-mixing provided the delicate crumb and crispiness that we all adore in a McVities digestive.
