Recipe by Perfect Pixie

My Mummy pleaded with me to make these, her grandma used to make them and she hadn't had them in so long. I took one each for my neighbour and her daughter and they loved them, took them to school and my friends demolished them and it was a fight over the last one. These are a true kiwi recipe, out of the Edmonds cookbook

Can't have them too often, I feel guilty about eating all that butter! Delicious for special occasions. I added a few drops of water to make it less crumbly.
