    Preheat oven to 160C and line 2 oven trays with baking paper. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, place on trays and press lightly to flatten. Bake, swapping trays halfway, until golden and crisp (12-15 minutes). Cool on trays for 5 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack. Biscuits will keep for 2 days in an airtight container.
