Dried mango has a lovely intense flavour. It is now easily available in supermarkets and oriental grocer’s, and is especially good for these easily made butter biscuits. Alternatively you could use crystallized ginger.
Lay the rounds on lightly buttered baking sheets and bake in the centre of the oven for 8-12 minutes, until pale golden brown. Let the biscuits cool on the baking sheets.
