Loved the look of the recipe that @epicurious tweeted about on Wednesday so much that I had to give them a try, so I got everything in and made them this morning. They were all gone by lunch time. Really easy to make (I’m still no pro), and really good with a cup of tea.

The full, original recipe below can be found at, but I decided to go for a classic icing sugar/cream cheese/vanilla essence middle and it was really good. Also, not only are they really good warm before they’re iced (and you feel a bit like you’re having one of your 5 a day), but they’re also good as a single biscuit with icing  rather than sandwiched as once you have two together it can be a bit daunting, I prefer to fool myself that I’m only having one, then eat several more, rather than start out with two at the same time.
