Thought I would try this recipe, sifted the spelt flour and baking powder together, (used a scant tsp as 1 reviewer seemed to think it made a bitterness) I then discovered I didn't have any sunflower oil so used butter and rubbed this in, then I substituted golden syrup for the honey. These were yummy McYum, had a few hot from the oven with a coffee... Mmm.

Following Meem's advice above, I only put just over 1/2 tsp of baking powder and they are delicious! Thank you for cheering us up during the current social isolation period.

Good recipe. Tasty cookies but had a very dry bitter aftertaste. I think the quantity of baking powder is too much. I will try half teaspoon next time.

Quick, tasty and very addictive. I had almonds so I used them instead of pecan. A real winner.
