  1. CDS – London & Hertfordshire – I love food and all things food is actually my life, I pretty much think about it constantly, what I last had to eat and what I am going to eat next...when I am not thinking about food, I am watching food related TV programmes (masterchef, masterchef australia, the great british bake off, jamie's 15 minute meals, gordon ramsay kitchen nightmares etc.) Apart from my weird food obsession, I am also a left handed dog lover, who has a weakness for James Dean, shopping and anything radio related!

    Hello! I have just made these, they are great! How long would you say they will keep for? X

    1. Hi Clare, I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the biscuits. They should keep in an air tight container for a week. Thank you for the feedback, Victoria x
