Accessories you need



If you switch yout TM5/6 to imperial measuments in the setting you can easily weigh in the 2oz/6oz measuments.

To make these biscuits vegan/vegetarian simply switch the butter for a dairy free spread and ensure your custard powder is egg/dairy free. Foster Clark's custard powder is vegan and Nuttalex buttery works very well as a butter substitute.
