Wow, for me and my husband, it was instant love at first bite. I love lemon so I doubled the lemon rind and as I didn't have currants at the time, I used sultanas. So simple and quick to make. Can't wait to try these with currants.

I had to adjust the cooking time, going only 15 minutes instead, and finding a way to get the seeds out would also be appealing. They end up rather crumbly (think sugar cookies) so next time, I'm adding a bit more flour to try and hold them together better. I also added some lemon juice as well, which helps the lemon balance even with the strong taste of currants. Lastly, I agree with Mrs. P. You are _quite_ correct when you speak of how wonderful they smell!

These biscuits are sooo delicious and smell wonderful while they are cooking. I made them with my son and he couldn't stop eating them as they came out of the oven!!
