These are great! I have a child with an egg allergy so I am always looking for egg free baked goods and these were fantastic. I have made them 3 times. Instead of using raisins I have substituted frozen mixed berries, or chopped almonds with a little almond extract and they were delicious. I also used butter instead of lard as I wasn't sure what that was?
