Rye and Spelt White Choc Chip Biscuits

This is my favourite biscuit recipe at the moment.  Since I cut down on eating wheat, I’ve found that I can’t eat very much at all.  Even 1 biscuit gives me terrible pains in the stomach (I guess I’m “food intolerance” as Oscar says!).  These biscuits are easy and very filling, so even though I only get 11 or 12 out of batch, they do last for a few days.

If amines are tolerated you could also use white chocolate instead of the white melts.
