  1. Is this a recipe for biscuits in the American or English sense? As it does not state how thick to roll them I am not clear. Do you have sweet biscuits in America (we call them scones) or are they always savoury? Thanks. Glyn

  2. sounds very nice and lemoney. i got a friend who likes lemons in cakes, i’ll make this for her next week. let you know how it went.

  3. I have made these biscuits for my family for the evening tea. Lovely! All were gone in minutes. The biscuits were sweet and with hint of lemon.

    If you let the dough to rest fo a while and then mix it with hands, biscuits become more puffier. Try to brush with a beaten egg before popping in the oven, this will give your biscuits a nicer look.
    Bon appetite!

  4. Do you have sweet biscuits in America (we call them scones) or are they always savoury? Thanks. Glyn

    do we call sweet biscuits scones? I think we call scones scones and biscuits biscuits, but Americans call a nasty doughy thing they have with gravy biscuits – horrid… they call biscuits …hey where have you been? …cookies.
