This is the first biscuit in my "Retro Baking" series. What I mean by this is I'm going to from time to time bake one of those classic home baking recipes which in many cases have sadly been replaced by fancier recipes. This is the type of baking I can imagine my Nana serving from one of her royal coronation souvenir tins :)
If you remember any recipes from your past, please remind me of them so I can try and find a recipe for it, or if you have the recipe - great - email it to me and I'll give it a try!
115g butter (4 oz back in the day!)
