if you are stuck with what to make for christmas then this recipe would be perfect for your christmas menu. it’s so simple and there’s no baking involved. great for kids to make. and it’s quintessentially australian.
my mum found the recipe and made the slices for her last quilting class of the year. her students loved them!
unlike other similar recipes, there is no copha (vegetable shortening). bonus!
