A great recipe to accompany the afternoon coffee (or tea). This recipe is fairly easy to prepare and can be kept for up to a week in the appropriate conditions. This recipe was sent to me by “Monchi”, it worked very well, so we made very few changes.

- In a separate bowl beat butter and brown sugar until the butter has turned a very light yellow. Add milk and flour alternating between the two until they are well mixed.
