Top Review by French Tart

Absolutely divine and JUST my cup of tea! LOVED these, I made them yesterday and served some to the B and B guests with a afternoon pot of tea, they loved them. Used EVERY single spice for a WONDERFUL depth of flavour. The only thing I forgot to do was glaze the tops with egg white, as I had too much going on in the kitchen! Made for the Cheese and Whine Gang for ZWT6, merci encore Reets! Karen :-)
