  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder

I must try these to see if they are as good as my Scottish granny used to make.

Made these today with one of my grandson's. They were fast and easy to make. We frosted them and put jimmies on them. They were really good. As you can see I said were. We had a lot of fun doing this. Thank you for such a quick and easy recipe.
