Adding dried fruit in biscuits not only help to sweeten this snack but also add a chewy quality. You can add any dried fruit available like dried cranberries, apricot, fig or fruit mix to them. Along with dried fruit, chopped toasted nuts can be incorporated in the dough but this is optional.
These were very easy to make and so good. They disappear fast once you laid them on the table.
