I followed the recipe exactly, just doubling the quantity to make more. They turned out exactly as the photo of them portrayed and tasted absolutely delicious. Oh, and I put raisins in one lot and choc chips in the other.

I followed the recipe exactly; just doubling the quantity as I needed to make plenty of these biscuits. They turned out just as the picture of them portrayed and were absolutely delicious. Oh, and I put choc chips in one lot and raisins in the other (yummy!).

Very quick and easy to make. I followed the recipe and didn't need to add anything and they turned out beautifully. Where it says 'put dessertsoons on tray' I found that I had to roll them into balls a little bit between my hands but they definitely stuck together because they were quite buttery. No problem to roll them into balls. Will definitely make them again.

Quick ... Simple ... Tasty ; what's not to like about these?! I made them a few days ago including cranberries and a splash of milk. However, they didn't turn out exactly as I would have liked. When I felt them in the oven they were soggy so kept them in the oven. In the end they were 'crispy' . Also they spread very quickly on the trays. But I know have a biscuit tin of crumbs which no one wants to eat.

I made these in a jiffy and they were eaten up in the same speed!! I didn't have to add any milk to my mixture as it was moist enough.
