    Raisins are good in these too. Also choc chips (although batter to cool slightly). Or some dessicated coconut....

    • These biscuits (sorry, for me cookies are soft, chewy things from the USA) are so easy to make it was actually quicker than nipping out to Waitrose for posh biscuits. I used ground almond in place of the flour as I had some in the cupboard that needed using up (only a year past its best by date) and a drop of almond essence instead of the spices. Delicious.

    • Great recipe! So simple and the result was amazing. I added some nutmeg and allspice with the cinnamon and can see this recipe becoming a favourite!
