you can ice them afterwards or add raisins, orange zest, choc chips etc to the mix to tart them up

melting moments <<RS casts mind back to Home Ec at school>>

i still make these biscuits as they are a great standby - the addition of half a glace cherry to the top of each one is a nice touch as well
