These biscuits are what my North American friends would call cookies, so don't get them mixed up with scones, which Americans call biscuits.
Wow. Don't you think it's all very weird how one language can be so confusing?
Regardless of what you call these, you will definately think they're good. So on the chocolate theme: Happy Easter!
