    Great recipe, easy for the kids and tasty for parents, too. Love that it's not over-sweet like so many home-made biscuits! Gorgeous texture. Thank you very much!

    Really easy to make, great for kids to join in with, but are really, really morish. Can easily be adapted to include other ingredients too.
