  • I am so glad I found this recipe, I think it is a very old Woman's Weekly one and perfect for a snack. - 8/28/11

    I got it from my mum but I think she copied it out of an old Woman's Weekly cookbook which she got when she first married in the late 60's. I've loved these cookies since I was a kid.
