This is Traditional Machester (England) delicacy that originated from the town of Eccles. These little cakes are actually pastries filled with currants and spice. Keep them in airtight decorative containers and give them as presents for the holidays!
I got 16 out of this recipe, but i don't think they'll last long. watch the oven temperature, I had to turn mine down after 10 minutes to stop them burnng. - 14 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
I actually haven't tried this recipe yet, I just wanted to know if the submitter could please comment and say what the recipe is for the pastry? This sounds like a recipe my grandmother used to make and when she passed away no one knew how to make this anymore. I would really love to try this recipe. - 22 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I use puff pastry. I buy a package of frozen puff pastry and it works a treat. Also I use brown sugar not white. - 26 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
