These biscuits are based on a recipe from my childhood. I have made some changes to the original and it is easy to make further changes if you are feeling creative. They are nice biscuits for afternoon tea or to put in lunch boxes. When I baked the biscuits this time I made half of them as per the basic recipe and added ½ cup Milo cereal to the other half for variety. If you use butter instead of margarine the biscuits taste richer. You can use raw sugar for a change.
