    These are delicious! Made them today for a morning tea and came home with an empty container. The ladies loved them.

      Yay!!! That’s fantastic!

  2. Kirsty says:

    I made these today and they were an epic fail 🙁 I followed the recipe exactly but mine spread so thin and consequently burned. They look absolutely nothing like the fluffy high biscuits in your picture. I’m normally an excellent baker so not sure what went wrong

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Kirsty, I’m sorry your cookies didn’t turn out! Definitely try reducing the oven temp next time and moving them to a rack further away from the heat source. If you notice that they’re browning too quickly, take them out a couple of minutes earlier. In terms of the spreading, this will be due to the mixture being warm when it’s placed into the oven (especially if you made them on a hot day). Try chilling the dough in the fridge before baking as this will help to prevent spreading. Hope that helps! xx

        I just made these and had the same trouble as Kirsty I’m not sure if the dough was too warm upon putting the cookies into the oven (it’s currently 9 degrees outside so a warm day can’t be a factor). Could I have mixed for too long to get a fluffy butter/sugar mix?
        Next time I’ll try leaving the dough in the fridge beforehand.
