i had some trouble making these. i made 2 logs but they blended together while baking. i had to cook them an additional 10 minutes for the first bake. they were very hard to cut, even though i used a serrated knife. they were soft and crumbly. they were still soft after the second bake, but they hardened as they cooled. that being said, my dh loved the flavor!
I made them and loved them!! Everything went according to plan. A little involved with all the chopping, but will definately be making these again!
