I gave this recipe a go and found it worked well - the biscuits are very nice. I didn't find it necessary to add any more liquid, it's really just a case of being firm with the mixture and forcing it into a dough. The dough will be quite crumbly and can be difficult to roll out in which case just keep on reforming the dough, cutting out the biscuits in batches.

I've tried this recipe (dundee biscuits)twice. Using one egg yolk to bind 8oz flour does not work. I have added milk to make it pliable in order to roll it and cut into rounds.
