Made for Fall '07 PAC. The almonds in this smelled awesome when these were baking. I could hardly wait for these to be done. Once they cooleed and I added the raisins, I finally got to taste this snack. All I can say is that I will be making these over and over. Thanks StrikingEyes for this great snack.
