When i was younger my nan was forever baking, it was a great way to pass the time on a rainy afternoon and i would always look forward to helping out (especially licking the spoon!)

One of my favourite recipes that i continue to make is her biscuits. The beauty of this particular recipe is that most of the ingredients are basics you usually have lying around in the cupboard. So if you have a last minute tea party coming up, this recipe is for you!
