Reviews for Chocolate Toffee Biscuits
"These are absoluely wonderful. What a treat. Everyone I share them with wants the recipe, and, it is sooo quick and easy."
"Oh, my, these are good. I added salt to the flour mixture--approximately 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. I used half and half for the milk. The crumb is very tender and moist. Don't skip the topping--the contrast of the crispy top with the tender inside is part of its deliciousness. This is lightly sweet--think scones, only without the trouble of rolling and shaping. Delicious with coffee for breakfast."
