    Heather Sullivan's Note:

    This originally came from Helen's British Cooking website. They are lovely lightly spiced, crisp biscuits (cookies), perfect for serving with tea. Mixed spice can be replaced by either pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice if British mixed spice is unavailable.

      i followed the recipe but in my fan assisted over it only took about 7 mins more than that and they were a dark brown and tasted a little burnt. I love them and so do my co-workers and girl guides.

      These were yummy, nice and crisp and great for dunking. Iused all spice as I didn't have British Spice, I also used cinnamon. I rolled into 24 balls and flattened them with a glass, I baked for 17 minutes to be sure they would be crisp. Thanks for a tasty cookie Heather, I will make these again.
