I used plain gluten free flour and chopped dried mixed fruits instead of currants. The biscuits were really lovely, - crumbly and very tasty. A highly recommended recipe.

Great little biscuits! I left out the lemon and the currents as I don't like them and I used Gluten Free SR flour as that was all I had, the still came out well. They are soft centered, even my husband liked them! Very easy to make
