This is my absolute favourite. I only make it twice a year though as I haven't got cold hands and must get up early to make them. Thank goodness for fridges as you need to keep the dough cold.! Thanx for sharing your recipe with ustinadc in Cape Town loved it
Nice of you to bring this recipe to the Round Table, I am so glad you did for this is a wonderful recipe. I can see that South Africa has a lot to offer me if I ever get to travel there. High Five
