These are easy--a quick little sweet to make.

These turned out very nice, the mix of spices was really good. I used raisins instead of pecans and made it without the glaze because I didn't have one of the ingredients. It was nice, easy and quick. I also tried it with mincemeat, super easy for me and tasty for them. I guess the possibilities are endless... Thanks for a great idea!
