    Very easy to make and tastes great. After reading previous reviews I added a little orange zest to add flavour and used star cutters. It took twice as long in the oven as stated (about 20-25 mins) but ovens do vary so not a problem. Overall, very happy  -  07 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
