Cinnamon Flakemeal Biscuits


Most of us in Northern Ireland grew up on a good flakemeal biscuit…mmmm sweet & wholesome (at least it feels it!).

Whether you’re after that comforting nostalgia or a new bake, give this a go! We’ve added a twist with some cinnamon sugar on top for festive fragrance, or go extra moreish and half dip them in chocolate!
