Search Ebay for vintage moulds. Oil well, press in the dough, then freeze in batches for 30 minutes. Turn out, then bake.
Freeze the dough for up to 3 months, wrapped in cling film. Defrost and continue.
You can keep the finished, cooled, undusted biscuits in an airtight container in a cool place for 4 days.
