Equipment used in this recipe: cookie trays, heavy based saucepan
  • I use a standard 20ml Australian tablespoon (= 4 teaspoons worldwide)
  • All ovens vary – always test for doneness 3-5 minutes before the recipe suggests
  • Serve with Homemade Ranch Dip or this Avocado Cream Sauce for dipping and this Simple Potato Salad or Pumpkin Mac and Cheese.
  • Maple syrup - you can use honey or more brown sugar in place of the maple syrup.
  • You can add a little hot sauce or cayenne pepper to the sauce to make it spicy.
