These were delicious! Verry verrry good! They were soft and chewy, even after we froze the extras for a few weeks and ate them later. The only problem we had was the dough rolling stage. We had to mix in a lot more flower before the dough became unsticky and solid, even though we'd left it in the fridge for a LONG time. So less than five stars for difficulty, but most definetly a recipe I'll use again and again because the taste is worth a little trial.

These cookies never set after 2 hours in the freezer. They made a big gloppy mess. I had to throw the dough away. They were terrible.

These are lovely little biscuits, a bit like scones, so good with a little jam or alone if you make them bitesize. Very easy to make - I added cinnamon to one half of the batch as Charishma did and these ones are especially nice. Think they'd be excellent with almond flavoring aswell. Thanks for a simple adaptable recipe!
