Default Bookmark shortcut on homescreen (ICS)?

Anyone have ideas as to how to make bookmark shortcuts on the home screen for ICS? Only thing I see under widgets is the "ribbon" shortcut but that is for the default browser....I am running Dolphin?

Thx.....

How do I create shortcut of my bookmarks to home?
After Launching Dolphin Browser, please click “+” plus tab, then access Bookmarks list page ( little star icon). Then holding on the bookmark you want to create shortcut will come out a menu, choose “Add shortcut to Home”. Everything is done!
Let me know if it works. I don't use Dolphin.

Just tried it on 2 devices, one running 4.0.4 (phone) and the tablet. It works on the phone but not the tablet. Strange, not sure why.

I followed sikOO's instructions and it worked fine.
I don't have seperate bookmarks on my screen, so trying it was the first time.
I use APW widgets. One is for bookmarks, and it's pretty good.
It's kind of like a box with small screenshots of the websites, and can be scrolled.
It's also resizable.

BTW: Please call me Jack. That's what my friends call me, and I think of this forum
as a place with new friends.
