The old boy made these the other day and they are damn good. He got the recipe from a friend and we all know how recipes get handed around and this particular one originated from the renowned Wayne Good of Clanfield Interiors in Cambridge. We had some of our clients call in the other day who were off to one of his famous Christmas cuisine demos. There is still time to get in a batch of baking to fill those tins for all those guests that call in over the holiday season.
