    These are the BEST cookies you will ever eat, this is actually a secret recipe that my Granny refused to give up, but after me complaining that it wasn't fair that we only ever got them when we ome home to New Zealand, which isn't ery often, she gave it up, YEY!!! I have it now and I am going to share it

      I couldn't believe it when I put Vanilla Biscuits in the search bar and the very recipe I was
      looking for appeared. I'm another Kiwi overseas and wanted something
      simple and tasty to bake before the girls came round for
      coffee. My Mum used to make these all the time.
      Reading the other reviews I reduced the sugar, only slightly to 2/3 of a
      cup. (I use a tea cup, not a coffee mug for measuring and recipes always work pretty well.)
      Anyway, they were exactly as I remembered them, crispy on the edges, a bit chewy in the centre, especially when they were warm. Yum!
      Thanks for posting this old favourite! ;)

      Also a Kiwi overseas, I remember these biscuits fondly and found this recipe after a short search. The only substitution I made was raisins for the sultanas (golden raisins - US). They came out fairly well but way too sweet for my liking. I would reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup next time. I also found that they started to colour around the edges quickly as well which was probably due to the high sugar content. They do have a good texture and flavour though. I think Granny might have had a bit of a sweet tooth (if any!). And Beautiful B.C. - some might take offense at your reference to "Oz". Aussies we ain't!
