  2. Stir in the egg yolks, ground almonds, toffees, dried apple and flour. Mix well together then roll into walnut-sized balls.

  3. Place well apart on two non-stick or lined baking sheets and flatten slightly with your hand. Brush with milk and bake for 8-12 minutes until golden. Leave to firm up for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

ok - didnt do a lot for me. They seemed to go down well with friends but I've definitely made better. I wouldn't follow this recipe again.

Made these tonight - used some oat bran with the flour, added mixed spice and used cheap toffees but they worked! (put them into a plastic bag and bashed with the rolling pin). Also used dried apricot - lovely!

Very tasty indeed. BUT they glued themselves to the baking tray and they fell apart afterwards.

made and enjoyed these tonight. I think the dough might be better with some cinamon in. I used Dairy toffees and gave them a couple of secs in the microwave before chopping them up with scissors which i dipped in the ground alonnds and flour to stop the blades being sticky.

This recipe made about 36 cookies for me. I added a tbsp of maple syrup and 1tsp mixed spice. They were yummy for a Halloween and Bonfire Party.

I fiddled with this recipe quite a bit, used fresh pear instead of dried apple and fudge instead of toffee, I also replaced half the flour with oats and put 50g extra ground almond in to compensate for the extra moisture in the pears. Result: absolutely delicious!

Delicious! I made these with dried apricots, chopped up small, chocolate chips and sultanas instead of toffees and apple. They were absolutely delicious. Firm favourites in our house now.

I make these every year. Do use soft toffees. I tried these once with tesco value toffees - I was on an economy drive - they tasted great but it was such an effort to break the toffee into small enough pieces.
