the recipe was plain but they were plain biscuits so they were as expected, if u are after a plain biscuit with a crunch this is a good recipe

fabulously quick, tasty and easy recipe for when you realise there's nothing in the house to go with the afternoon cup of tea! I read the other comments first - halved the sugar, added 1/2 tbsp more milk and threw in some left over choc drops. Delish.

Do you have to use wholemeal flour or can you swap to regular while flour?

Don't use self raising flour. Plain flour is fine. I am using old bread flour as cannot buy anything in the shops for love nor money and they come out just fine. Personally I add 100g of oats to get the right balance.
