Passionfruit And Lime Biscuits (Cookies)

by Tenina Holder

There is nothing like a nice biscuit/cookie with your cuppa in the morning/afternoon…am I right? These are great to have in the freezer in a roll, unbaked. Just remove from freezer for about 10 minutes, preheat your oven while they thaw a little, slice and bake as directed below. They may need a couple of minutes extra, depending on how good your oven is…(are you hearing the call to Kleenmaid??) I have a dearth of limes thanks to my diligent gardening sister who supplies me with passionfruit as well…so to put them together is just brilliant! Enjoy!
