These are delicious. I had store bought at my friends house and really enjoyed them. They are a bit pricy at the stores so I checked the zaar for a recipe. I found this it turn out great taste even better then store bought. I didn't put the candied cherries in but followed the rest. I'll be making these often. Thanks
