Make sure to separate the pieces a bit before you put them back in the oven for round 2, makes them have a bit more of a crunch! Came out very tasty - thanks!

Really nice crunchy biscuites.
I just found that the dough was a bit too sticky. It it the way it is supposed to be or should I add some more flour?
