  • “These were just too simple.They were very good, however I did not have any caster sugar so I just used regular white sugar and it worked quite well except that I would sprinkle much more freely next time as I like my sweets.”

  • “I have made these a few time now.I used vanilla sugar on mine and spread some vegan chocolate icing on top.When I made the icing instead of using butter I used vegan margarine. Delicious treat, thanks for the recipe!!”
