Comments
Note: I haven't tried this recipe yet though I keep meaning to. I got it from a recipe book which has proved pretty reliable so I hope they're OK. It is hard to describe the shaping process, but if you look at a bought one you'll see exactly what happens. There are diagrams in the book but it is no good on email! Have fun............
