These cookies ticked all the boxes. Easy preparation, attractive presentation, drop-dead flavour and compliments till the cow came home. To sum up: an awesome keeper of a recipe. Though when I made them the ingredients as listed produced nearly 100 cookies and I only needed to cook each tray for 5 minutes to produce soft-inside/crisp-outside cookies or 6 minutes for crisp-English-style-biscuits. Thank you.
These are so yummy! Made as per recipe, only change was to the cooking time. Mine were done in 9 mins (for crunchy outside and slightly chewy center). Have made twice more already as kids wolf them down!
Jess these are really yummy. I made a batch up for Amber to take to parents morning tea at pre-school tomorrow. Mine turned out crunchy on the outside and soft in the centres, just how I like them. To stop the fork from sticking when I flattened the biscuits I heated the fork up in a cup of very hot water, then dried with a towel then pressed into the biscuit mix, repeating for each biscuit. This was a trick I learnt from my Grandmother years ago. Thanks for posting - I will use this recipe often :-)
