Q.  I saw a recipe that called for Lorna Doone biscuits. Being an Australian, I have no idea what sort of biscuits Lorna Doone biscuits are? Could you please explain?

A. Lorna Doone Shortbread Cookies, to use the full and proper name, are store-bought square, white, shortbread-like cookies. They are not as buttery nor as crumbly as real shortbread. Real shortbread would certainly be a lovely substitute in the recipe in question.
