Looking through Mum’s tattered old recipe book, I came across a few recipes I can clearly remember from my childhood. These biscuits were one of my favourites growing up. Nan would often send some back home with us after we had been up visiting her for the weekend. Like a lot of Nan’s recipes, there are just a few ingredients and they are super easy. They are incredibly light and it’s really hard to stop at one! This batch made around 18 biscuits – and between 6 of us, there are only 3 left.
