I thought this might be one of those recipes that sounds very strange but actually might be delicious, but I was wrong. They did not taste bad - just weird. Now I know why our local bakery does not sell them.

Due to ingredients that I had on hand, I substituted allspice with a pinch of cloves & a heaping 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, sour milk with buttermilk, shortening with butter & yogurt with sour cream. It all worked, was a little wetter but most excellent.
