      The last cookie sheet has just come out of the oven. They are sooo good (especially with a glass of cold milk). I reduced the brown sugar to 3/4 cups and the white sugar to 1/2 cup. Thanks for sharing.

      I won't put stars because I had to use golden syrup (no molasses) and copha instead of shortening (supposed to be okay to sub but I am not too sure). Also, my egg was a double yoker so that may have increased the liquidity. The taste was awesome, spicy, sweet, but ours are chewy and quite flat. I suspect just a bit less shortening and a normal egg could thicken them up. And yes, like *Kathy* we didn't get 10 dozen. We only got 80 biscuits, using teaspoons of the mixture. However, I would definitely use this recipe again, just tweak it for us. I was hoping for a recipe like Arnotts Gingernut that look just like *Kathy*s photo!
