I made these using a regular marmalade and they were luscious! I am going to make them agian when I can find a real marmalade - the bitter kind. I gave some of these to my shopping mates(we take the Senior van shopping) and they gobbled them up! I'm sorry I only took enough for 1 per person. Thank you for this wonderful and easy recipe. Lee
