Made a batch & a half of these & let my other half to take a full batch of 'em to share at work ~ The rest were kept right here for us to enjoy! I was generous with the dried fruit, but otherwise followed the recipe right on down! Great tasting treats, & a keeper of a recipe, too! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
