    Very good and crisp, just like a biscuit should be. The only change I made was using honey instead of golden syrup.  -  22 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Such a great recipe! I rolled the mixture into an 8 inch sausage, sliced in to 12 pucks, spaced well on a baking sheet covered in greaseproof paper  -  12 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
