I come from Scotland and I used this recipe to make this for the very
first time, it was delicious! My family were really impressed
and keep asking if I have made any more yet, so will be using this
recipe again for sure :D

Made this today, its great but the condensed milk tastes
A little dark or burnt? Maybe I cooked it to long.

I'm so sorry to hear that! It may have cooked too long or at too high a temperature.

That looks really good! Man I wish I could pull one off the monitor and eat it.

Thanks so much! You should give them a try!
I may just do that, though I would have to give the majority of them away immediately to keep from just sitting there eating them till I can't taste anything anymore. You should definitely enter these and the Bellinis in the cookie contest if you haven't already.
