These are a nice easy bake to do with a young child. My 5 year old says, "These are great biscuits. We love them. They are really easy to make and we will surely make them again."

Great Biscuits to cook when you're at home. Always have the ingredients ;) Easy biscuits to bake w/ kids, Great for lockdown. Though I always get them a little dry from the oven, first time best. Great recipe :)

Quick and easy. Taste good, albeit a little plain, but I guess they are supposed to. I put much more syrup in mine.

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?

Use Vegan Margarine and Oat Milk to make this vegan. Tastes great
