This is another recipe from the cookbook Exquisite but Simple, Modified 19th Century Recipes by Mary Reid. I haven't tried this yet, but will in the near future.

These were rather like an orange-flavoured shortbread. I used brown sugar and halved the amount (the full cup would have been too sweet for us) and use just a pinch of salt. I also used slightly less milk. Loved the orangey flavour. Thanks for sharing!
