I freeze all the biscuits I make.  You can more about how I freeze biscuits and cookies here. I place them frozen in the kids lunchboxes and they are defrosted by morning tea time.

Could you have more honey & less sugar do you think?

Are the qualities right in the recipe, or is it missing milk?
I seem to have a bowl of what resembles bread crumbs. I have put everything the recipe asks for.

I’m with Andrea, a bowl of breadcrumbs. Is there an ingredient missing? Thanks

I ended up adding milk, but added too much and got a sticky mess but got some biscuits in the end. So maybe 3tbs?

Definitely something missing. I added extra butter and a bit more honey. Turned out nice and short. Very yummy. Would love to try them with the correct quantities though.

Agree, definitely something not quite right with the quantities. Have gone rogue, will see how they turn out

that’s so great to hear. I think there could be a few factors, how soft the butter is, how big the egg yolk is, but what you did adding a little extra milk is perfect 🙂

Comes back to the Egg Yolk and it’s size… I had 800g eggs (large) and they worked out perfectly! If your eggs are small I would use two yolks! Yum… will be adding lemon rind next time and only half a cup of sugar! So easy and so yum!

I added the egg white and another spoon of milk and got a good mix. I found the biscuits eye watering sweet though, and couldn’t taste the honey over the coconut, so Im guessing the mix was so dry because of too much coconut and sugar, Rather than not enough wet ingredients.

Jacqueline I would recommend cutting back the amount of sugar if you’re finding them too sweet and dry. I hope this helps 🙂 Kat x
