    I made a batch of these to give to neighours for chirstmas - it was a huge hit and I have been asked for more every year from now on. I didn't worry about the icing however as they are lovely with a cuppa just as they are.

    Delicious.  My Austrian father in law ate 6 in a row!  I made the icing with lime juice (no spices) and completely coated the biscuit.  Very yummy with the peppery flavour of the biscuit.  Thank you!
