    Used different ingredients. Try adding about 50grams of slivered almonds to the mix as an optional extra. A very nice biscuit either way though.  -  07 Apr 2010

    Loved them. Very quick and simple to make. For a change in flavour I swapped vanilla extract for Orange flavouring. Both worked just as well.  -  04 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
