Great quick recipe. Not sure why it says prep 1 hour - I nearly didn't bother with the recipe because of this - but luckily read on and was able to use this recipe to quickly prepare simple Christmas biscuits with the children.

These take 10 minutes to prepare and then my daughter has a great time stamping out biscuits. They keep very well and are nice topped with lemon icing and sugar sprinkles. I make mine with golden syrup instead of honey as that is what I have in the cupboard.
