  1. I found a pineapple biscuit cutter recently - did yours come in a set with other (quickly shoved into back of cupboard) fruits? So pleased to find one finally. This recipe looks simple and delicious.

  2. I'm thrilled you have a pineapple biscuit cutter - every household needs one! I found this one on ebay, there were other fruits in the series. If you try the recipe I suggest adding maybe some ginger or cinnamon, I felt the nuts dominated the flavour a tad. Cheers, Anne
