The best biscuits I’ve ever eaten… this was the response I got after art director Yolanta Woldendorp and photographer Sally Tagg bit through one of my birthday biscuits. My mum had sent up a fresh batch for me and they came in handy whilst out on our NZ Lifestyle Block cover shoot. They said I must share the recipe of these crunchy yet chewy and delicious biscuits. So here it is…thanks Mum. – Rebecca Needham
