      Now these yo yo biscuits did not yo yo as they should but due to no fault of the recipe !! It was an incredibly hot day and the batter got so soft so quickly that they spread on the trays but tasted fabulous with still a fabulous texture. Due to the heat I cut my losses and did not fill them. The recipe certainly made a decent amount and the cooking time was perfect. I think I had better wait till the depths of winter before trying these out again and I look forward to perfecting them !!

      Yo-Yo biscuits are so expensive to buy already made, this recipe is so easy and they taste so yummy. Mine were not as pretty as your bikkies but the whole family really enjoyed them. Thank you so much for posting the recipe Hanka.
