I had these for the first time when I moved to Scotland. This is what would happen if gingerbread and scones had kids. :-) I doubled the recipe when I made them and am not sure if I miscalculated, but there was a lot of liquid! So, if your dough is too liquidy, add small amounts of flour until you have a soft dough. They will still come out great! :-)
