These cookies are" TO DIE FOR" said my husband. My family polished them all off before I even got chance to melt the chocolate to drizzle over them!!! I cannot tolerate cow dairy products or gluten, so used gluten-free flour, goat's butter and sweetened soya milk. I was a little worried that the strong flavour of the goat's butter might over-power the other ingredients, but it didn't. I am toying with the idea of using honey instead of the syrup in my next batch...which will hopefully not be eaten BEFORE they are drizzled in chocolate!! Thanks so much for sharing this gorgeous recipe x - 05 Apr 2012


These are easy to make and are very popular. One work colleague suggested I start a business selling them! Lovely, tasty, chewy cookies - 01 Dec 2013
