Yoyos

"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.

    These are great! So easy to make - I had very very soft butter which made it easier to mix. Yummo! Will need to go for a long run now to work them off!!

    This was a good recipe to make with my 7 year old. I helped by providing extra muscle as the dough must be creamed properly. Well worth the effort.

    These were really nice! I did have to add a bit more butter than in the recipe though, as the mix was very crumbly.
