Pure natural ingredients and sOOoooo good. No baking. I usually include them in my Christmas goodie boxes. Don't make them too big they are very rich.

Wow- fabulous! I used toasted pistachios and walnuts with candied ginger (no cherries). I also added some cinnamon and powdered clove (just a touch). I rolled half in chopped pistachios as well and they are just wonderful. These are a permanent addition to the holiday cookie tray.
