    Mille®'s Note:

    These spicy fruited biscuits were originally baked and eaten around Easter, particularly in the West Country of England, but are too good to be restricted to such a short time period! Please note that the measurements are dry weights, and not silly American fluid measurements for dry goods.

      INCREDIBLE!!! I was feeling creative this easter, but after ruining TWO batches of hot cross buns I had lost all hope of giving anything but the standard chocolate egg as a gift this year. These biscuits were cheap, easy and SO delicious! A new tradition in my household!
