Delicious, and quick and easy to make -- but if you make these biscuits the size specified, the yield is something much closer to 32 than 12! :)

Added freshly ground cardamom seeds and white chocolate chips; they disappeared very quickly, Going to try orange zest and cranberries next time.

Great recipe! Super simple and yummy biscuits. I swapped the butter for flora dairy free to make it vegan and added 2 tsp of chai spice mix I had made up previously. So good I immediately made another batch to give away. Thank you Doves Farm!

A cookie texture, with a cakey interior. I only had wholemesl rye flour, and couldn't get the dough to bind without a couple of tbsp milk added. It was easy enough to handle afterwards and cut well. The flavour is quite savoury, so needs additional flavours. I added milk choc chips to this, and will try with cheese and herbs in the future
