These are exactly what they're described as. Really simple to make and really tasty. I followed the recipe to the letter and although i didn't think they were too sweet, I could see how some people would. I will definitely make these again. - 16 Jun 2012


Easy to make, but went very flat on the tray. Still very nice though. - 12 Jan 2014
