Sadly didn't work out at all well. I must have overdone the butter greasing my baking trays as they have spread horribly. I didn't grease the remaining trays but even those have spread loads and don't look very presentable. Disappointed.

Easy and delicious. A good base recipe to change up. I'll try orange with some cinnamon and pecans in next time.
