The recipe is caleld "Granny Boyd's Biscuits"... it's from Nigella Lawson's book "how to be a domestic goddess" but I guess you may be able to find it online somewhere?They're a great "emergency" biscuit recipe as you just need store cupboard things + butter. I overcooked them a bit as I've not baked in this oven before but they were still very tasty :)
