      I was quite excited to see this recipe on as it is a family favourite which we made ALL the time and became quite famous for! We call them "Golden Biscuits" and I think the originally came on the back of a power bill in the 1960's in New Zealand. We used to double, triple or quadruple the recipe but they still never lasted more than a few days in the biscuit tins! My brother had a friend who used to drive all the way across the city, (8 Km) and raid our biscuit tins if he knew we had just baked a batch.

      Only tip for this recipe is that you need to practice getting the consistency right as they can turn out wildly different depending on how hot the day is or how much flour you put in. Make the dough slightly wet and let them spread a little makes them turn out nice and chewy.

      Super easy to make and all that butter makes them very 'melt in the mouth'. I made them with wheat free flour too and they were crumbly and lovely.
