What are they called? I want to make some and need a recipe if anyone can help? I only know they are yum, and are very crumbly. Thank you.

You called?

I don't know nightshade. I will do some googling.

I don't think they are German - the ones I'm thinking of are not iced.

I was going to say empire biscuits, but they're iced too.

They're Swiss shortcakes I think. There's a recipe in the bero book.

Thank you Rosa, no that's ok, but lovely of you to offer. I will have a go at the first recipe and see how I get on.

Thanks Odd, no that's not them.

Melting moments were rolled in oats in our house.
DM used to make them. I'd forgotten them. DD2 would love them.

Odd, thanks for posting that recipe, I am definitely going to make them, they look yummy!

Empire biscuits? Two shortcake biscuits (or Royal Scots biscuits) sandwiched together with jam, then iced with a cherry on top - see picture.
