    Love the flavour.  Reminiscent of the childhood store bought variety.  Dough was very manageable, but I didn't succeed in the scroll look.   tmrc_emoticons.). Thanks for the recipe.  Family loved them also.

  • I'm not sure what I did wrong

    Submitted by JulieB64 on 22. October 2015 - 19:05.

    I'm not sure what I did wrong with these but the dough was so dry and thick I was unable to roll it out. I ended up shaping it into a couple of logs and slicing thin rounds to bake. My husband says the biscuits are ok with icing on them, but I'm not a fan I'm afraid. A shame, because I absolutely loved the coffee scroll biscuits I used to be able to buy at the supermarket. I followed the recipe exactly too.
