i really liked this recipe, I changed the brown sugar to caster sugar because the taste was too harsh. i made it for my family and friends at netball and added chocolate chip and they all loved them. another on i used for my GCSE food tec controlled assessment was icing sugar and poping candy were all a huge hit with me family and friends at school. I also made them like jammy dodgers, they were also hugely liked at home.
also 1 tip for if you are going to make them, i would make them tinner because they taste miles better thin than they do thick. - 02 Oct 2011
