I haven't tried the recipe but I tried the cookies Navid baked, and they taste heavenly.

I haven't tried this recipe, but no matter how good they taste- they are the wrong shape! They should be round, not square!

Chris, Guest2009 Apr 19
I agree they should be round, sure these are very nice. This is the eccles cakes I remember however...

I'm so happy to have found this recipe, I'm sure will try it.I know of a French cookie that look same(puff pastry); but unfortunately the company doesn't make it anymore.And yes, the shape is square!

I remember them being square when I was a kid in Liverpool but then I have had many different versions of them over the years. So it is all good!
