I made a half batch of these for Easter Sunday. Even though I got slightly confused by the instructions, i did not ruin them and they turned out beautifully! I added some nutmeg and allspice to the flour, as well as I used currants. These are fabulous and the only thing wrong with them is that they are so delightful you may end up eating too many. KennKonn: Your mother's recipe was not posted in vain :) THANK YOU!!
These were SOOOOO good!! I used quite a bit more flour~and they still tasted light and yummy. I substituted the raisons for cherry flavored cranraisons~my kids LOVED them. Another thing I tried~I cut them in half and toasted them & spread on butter & sprinkled sugar & cinnamon on them~they were a huge hit with the kids!!
This recipe brings back so many fond memories of family holiday gatherings! My grandmother made these for every family gathering. She never wrote her recipes down, just from memory. So this recipe taste almost exactly like hers. She used currants in place of raisins. But these are fantastic! Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe!!
