Recipe by Lorrie in Montreal

Takes a labour intensive recipe and brings it forward to be available for time-constrained or multi-tasking Bakers. *GLAZE* Mix together:3/4 cup Icing Sugar -- 1TBSP Milk -- 2 drops Almond Flavouring. Prep Time reflects time in ABM and second rising.Could differ with different models.

This recipe works beautifully, they rise and smell wonderful when cooking. However I think the mix needs sugar. I have made it first as printed above then with the addition of 3 slightly rounded tablespoonsfull of sugar. The second batch were undoubtedly best. I had one warm from the oven, well buttered and topped with a slice of cheddar. Brill!!
