If you prefer free-form biscuits, at step 4, simply roll dough into walnut sized balls and place on a baking sheet. Flaten slightly with a fork. Then bake as per step 5.

These biscuits have been a favourite in our family for many years. They were often baked, along with Anzac's and Gingernuts in batches that yielded 8-10 dozen! It was rare to open the pantry and not have a jar full.
