Something else. Only cook for about 15 - 20 mins. They will still appear soft, pale and uncooked but they will firm up once they have cooled down. If you keep cooking them assuming they are not done, they will be very brittle. Allow to cool on tray before removing. - 13 Sep 2010

brilliant quick and very easy recipe for busy women like us with children wanting to get busy in the kitchen. I used 300g of butter instead of 500g which seemed to solve the problem with wetness and baked for 20 minutes. Turned out to be perfect on my first attempt, so now its given me the idea to parcel some up for little christmas gifts. happy baking everyone x - 04 Dec 2011
