    Wow - just made this and it's just lovely! Soo easy too. I didn't even bother to ice them and they're still yummy.  -  01 Aug 2011


    Follwed the instructions to the letter, no mention of baking tin size, used gluten free flour as I am coeliac, was like a greasy biscuit, had to put the lot in the bin- yuk. Had to give one star as that is the minimum!  -  16 Sep 2012


    Very easy. I put into the freezer to help it set.  -  08 Mar 2011
