Agree with other posters that they do crumble but only if moved too soon. I recommend placing them on greaseproof paper to cook and them leaving them until completely cool. Move using a palate knife. The taste is absolutely delicious. Don't let the fragility of these cookies put you off. They literally melt in your mouth and taste like a toffeed-apple crumble! Yum

These are great. Very easy to make and very more-ish. I hadn't been able to get straight-forward toffees and had toffee eclairs, so their chocolate centre melted out a bit. Still worked. Make sure to compact the "dough" well so the biscuits don't crumble apart when you take them out - although the crumbs are delicious for those that do crumble. And make sure you space them well. The biscuits will spread a little and merge into each other if they're too close.

Oh and let them cool on the baking paper before removing. They do need time to dry out before putting on the wire tray, though that could have been the apple slices and chocolate eclair I used.

I thought these were yummy- apart from the dried apple was a little bit hard to chew but I think that was just the type of dried apple and the chewy toffee was so hard to cut up! But other than that - YUM!

Love these cookies, took them to bake club the other night and they were a hit. Only 4 stars from me though as I did find the mixture quite dry and crumbly and therefore hard to work with, but this didn't seem to have any impact on the taste, which was delicious.

What a disaster. I made double the quantity for two different events and hardly had any cookies that did not fall apart. I won't make these again.
