Great recipe! The entire family enjoyed it. Definately something I'm going to hold on to in the future. A simple recipe that is easy to make. Each mouthful delivers a luxurious taste. Whats more to ask for? Thank you Baby Kato. Keep posting awesome recipes.

These came out surprisingly good! I used whole wheat flour, and instead of the cherries I used dried fruit. I'm not sure what the recipe implies, but I used fresh mission figs (not dried). The only thing I might change next time is add a little extra vanilla extract or maybe some cinnamon to the dough. Great breakfast/snack since its dough-y, almost bread-like. Thanks!

Except for increasing the figs to 1 cup & the cherries to 1/3 cup, I followed this recipe & had a wonderful taste treat! Another time I MIGHT use dried cherries & see how that goes ~ as long as they don't overpower the figs! Thanks for this great recipe!
