This weeks bake is a little one perfect for Mothers day, these sweet but sharp biscuits are the perfect treat and would be a lovely hand made gift for any Mum. Although I am not sure that these will last around that long! They are easy to make but a the dough can be little sticky and difficult to manage if using fresh or frozen raspberries. I would recommend using freeze dried or dehydrated raspberries as they won’t change the consistency of the dough as much.
