This is a Zaar recipe that I adopted. I hope to make this soon as I think it's a recipe that my family would enjoy. I'll edit the recipe accordingly if needed.

They aren't bad, but I've made better. These tended to be more biscuity than others I've had. They were a little heavy. Most recipes I've used call for more sugar and use cream. I think that would help them. Also brushing melted butter over the top before you bake them is nice.

Great recipe - I usually add currents or dried cherries when making this recipe. Thinking about adding dried cranberries and orange zest.
