“Yes, you did read it correctly - these biscuits have chili powder in them!! Try them and see what you think - I get a mixed reaction when I make them, but they are certainly a talking point, and you can taste the chili powder in them. Recipe comes from a NZ Home and Garden magazine with the title Sugar 'n Spice, Zesty Meals.”
