    Altered ingredient amounts. I needed to add a little milk to make a more manageable dough. Delicious  -  24 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Made these today and they turned out perfectly. Just couldn't use all the flour, probably about 1-1/2 cups. I used the cumquat jam I made from another "allRecipes" member. Delicious!  -  25 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
