    Just made these they are really nice. I had to order the vanilla desert mix online but it's worth it!  -  25 Nov 2014


    have also made this vanilla slice but instead of puff pastry have used the lattice biscuits, just cover the bottom and top with them. so easy and delicious  -  07 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I made recipe exactly as per recipe. It is fairly rich so I cut it into fairly small squares. Definitely a keeper!  -  17 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
