    These bikkies have lasted for a week now, and still as yummy as when I baked them...... just a wonderful recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this.  -  12 Oct 2010


    very easy recipe. I threw choc chips in, instead of having the gooey centre & also a few drops of vanilla essence. Base dough is so simple to make and not too sweet!  -  31 Jan 2012
