These are fun to make and fun to eat! The dough was so easy to handle! I overbaked the first batch, but the next two batches came out great, still soft and not over browned. I have only tried them warm and can't wait to see what they taste like later! Thanks for posting this fun and yummy recipe!

Wonderful and light! These came together so easily and turned out so perfectly! I love how these cookies aren't too sweet and aren't too flour-y. Just awesome. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I know that I will be making it again and again.

Excellent cookies! I got 26 cookies out of this batch. I used raspberry jam and dusted with powdered sugar. To make the hole in the top cookie, I used the insert from my pastry bag.

Excellent biscuits. They taste so good and also look so petite and gorgeous to serve to guests. These are so light that you can keep eating them forever. Other than that, there's nothing wrong with them!

This recipe makes a wonderfully light, melt in your mouth, biscuit (cookie)! The dough is easy to make, and easy to handle - although the rolling and cutting does take a bit of time. Thanks for the tip about using the cap from the essence bottle to make the holes - it worked perfectly! I used cherry jam which was delicious but a bit lumpy for the purpose - I'll use raspberry jam next time. Perhaps the fact that you need jam should be added to the list of ingredients, as I used a whole 300g bottle. The recipe made 26 double biscuits. They make a lovely treat with our morning coffee and we think of Myra on her sheep station each time we eat them! Thanks for a lovely old-fashioned recipe, Andria!
