These biscuits don't spread a great deal when baking, so quite a few can fit on a tray. My grand mother used to bake these all the time, I don't know why they were called Rickety Annes ...... We called them 'Mickey Mac' biscuits because that was the name of their cat who used to sit and wait for some biscuit batter every time she made them... he loved it !

  • So simple – thanks for sharing.
