    Not nice, not sweet enough and tasteless. Consistency okay.

    Love them, use a natural sugar substitute as I am diabetic and add orange peel. They taste great and just as sweet as if you used sugar

    Added icing with orange rind on another few, or if you have ribeena cordial use that instead of a teaspoon of water. I ate 2 and my sugars did not rise in my bloods. Maybe from 4.8 to 6.5 and thats a treat to me.

    When i rolled it out i put sesame seeds on it and gave one or two more rolls to set them in it. I grated lemon peel into the mix as well. I put 6 to the side and mixed cinnamon before i rolled them out. Not as sweet but i am diabetic.

    Thank you.
