    Catherine Robson's Note:

    Many many years ago my daughter brought home a recipe that was shared at her kindergarten class by a little girl called Brianne for her nanna's biscuits. The note at the bottom of the recipe made it worth keeping all this time & although I have not made this yet I thought that someone may remember them from their childhood. The note reads: "This makes lots & lots of biscuits. My nanna had 5 children during the war and she used it lots so she could feed the children. She never bought biscuits all her life. Nanna always made these for all her grandchildren's birthday parties and they are my favourite biscuits. by Brianne"
