    Really easy to make. Really ought to come with a health warning....VERY moreish!!! These were devoured within a couple of hours of coming out of the oven. I used goats butter as I cannot tolerate cow products...still tasted fab. Thanks for sharing  -  09 Jun 2012


    Made these a bit bigger than recommended - used a dessert spoon to dollop them onto the baking tray. Didn't take 20 minutes to cook. Only about 16/17 minutes. Delicious!  -  17 Jul 2016
