Divide mixture in half.

Spread each half onto a greased tray - spread with a knife until it forms a 30cm x30cm square, keeping edges neat and straight.

Repeat with other half of mixture.

Cook at 150 oC for 10-15 minutes till light to golden brown.

Cut each tray into 25 biscuits - 5 x 5.

To harden biscuits a little more return to oven which has been turned off - leave for another 5 - 10 minutes.

When completely cold, pack biscuits in plastic bags. Seal and label.
