    7. 7
      Place close together in two greased loaf pans (30cm x36cm x 7cm) and brush the sides of each row of balls with oil so that the rusks will break apart easily after being baked.

      YUM! I didn't do the whole ball rolling thing as we never used to make our rusks this way. I just put the whole lot into one huge roasting pan and cut them up when slightly cooled. I dried them on about 80 degrees C (fan forced) from about 11:30 that night until 6 or so the next morning. These were yummy as. The only mistake I made was bringing them out when our relatives came over. They were ALL gone in half an hour!
