This is the kiwi version of this. The Edmonds top 20. These biscuits were baked during the first world war for the soldiers. There are no eggs in these biscuits and use ingredients we usually have in the pantry. Golden syrup can be replaced by treacle.

I've made this recipe a few times now and I love it. The batter is a bit loose so be sure to press each cookie down slightly just to even it out. I've used chocolate chips or butterscotch chips and they're both great. It works with raisins or cranberries and even dried cherries. Read More

If I had been baking Florentines I would have been thrilled! these cookies spread out so much and were thin as pancakes. What did I do wrong? Double checked the recipe several times -I think too much butter? Read More

Biscuits came out very greasy. Will try a little more flour next time and brown sugar instead of white sugar. Read More
