“A recipe creditted to Lynne Mullins (an award winning writer, restaurant critic and author) from our local Newcastle Herald newspaper. So easy to make and so much more economical than buying siilar biscuits from the deli. The writer states that the recipe can be easily doubled, then half of the dough can be frozen for later use. I haven 't tried this recipe gluten-free yet-but suspect it would be good with a good blended fdf flour and perhaps some added almond meal. Recipe using Australian measuring cups- 1 cup =250 mls”
40-50 biscuits
