    Karin...'s Note:

    These are SOOOOOOOOOOO quick and easy to make and are really lovely to have with coffee or as a very LIGHT dessert! The beauty of these are that they can be made well in advance and stored in an airtight container!

      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!!
