Biscuits

My birthday feels like it was ages ago (and it sort of was… as it was in May!) – but I was super lucky to get a whole array of amazing gifts from friends and family members!! With at least 90% of it being food or kitchen related!

One of which, was a biscuit maker from my mom… which I used a short time afterwards and have been meaning to post about for ages… so here it is!

This recipe was adapted from the Snowflake Book of Baking that mom had given me in 2001 (so you see – there are some things that REALLY last :))
