"My daughter made these as a "Welsh" dish for a school program on immigration. My main problem with the recipe is that it is somewhat unclear. The ingredient list calls for one quarter cup milk, yet ..." See morethe direction is for you to beat the egg in a cup measure and add milk to the one quarter cup line. That ended up being much less than a quarter cup of milk. The other criticism is that there is no time given for baking. We baked the cookies about until golden brown (25 minutes) and they came out too hard and dry. Not a bad cookie, but I wouldn't go to the trouble again with the kneading and cutting. "
"My welsh friend tells me that they should be baked on top of the stove on a griddle (I DO MINE ON A LARGE FRY PAN I DONT HAVE A GRIDDLE) couple of minutes each side on a medium heat. Place on a plate ..." See morewith a clean tea cloth over till cool, then place in airtight container till required, but the wont last long. spread with butter, yummmmm"
