hi aunty yochana,

i would like to try yr wholemeal biscuit but one problem.

"cream" the butter, does this mean use the mixter to beat the buuter till white creamy. i tried this method but my cookies turned to cake texture.

Can advise where i go wrong?

Hi ester,

Don't cream too long for cookies.

use normal plain flour. You have to add plain flour to the wholemeal flour.
