If equated, these are to South African children what Oreo Cookies are to American children, though they are not the same in taste. I never stick mine together to make 'sandwiches' but prefer to dip each cookie into melted chocolate and sprinkle on chocolate vermicilli.

Delicious Cookies, only change I made was used egg substitute. I found it difficult was converting dried ingredients such as sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, etc. from mls into grams (I normally used mls to measure liquid ingredients). Once I converted these ingredients it was very easy to make. Little Miss (DD) helped with the chocolate sprinkles so we had lots of fun making these together. Thank you Bokenpop
