    I used butter instead of margarine and added some cinnamon and they were really nice. Needs more baking powder/ self raising flour and I definitely recommend the cinnamon. These have a nice chewy texture.  -  03 Jul 2017

    I made these today using dark brown, unrefined Muscovado cane sugar as it was all I had in the cupboard. They are delicious! Chewy and crunchy at the same time. Almost a toffee taste. Next time I make them I'm going to try with a light soft sugar and cherries instead of nuts. Lovely warm, I couldn't wait to let them cool.  -  27 Jun 2015
