These biscuits taste A-mazing but then anything with such a high butter content by all rights should!!
I totally recommend these for a cold, cosy afternoon at home with the kids. We have loads of cookie cutters and the children love choosing the right one, rolling out the dough and pressing them to get the desired shape.
You could make these for any time of year, rabbit shapes at Easter etc.
I would say, keep an eye on these beauties when they are in the oven, you want just cooked rather than over done!
