Top Review by Don Steele

Ellie,I made these this morning for the "gals" and my GP'S office,I usually try to bring them something,gets me Brownie points.They enjoyed them very much,as did I.
I thought that the whole grape may be overwelming and so cut them in half,this worked out fine.I also put a half grape on top of each before baking for "looks" and also added some decorating sugar on top ,in place of the recipe's granulated sugar,and omitted the icing sugar after they came out. The half grape and the glisten of the decorator sugar to me,made a lovely presentation.For the wine I uesd Manischewitz,concord grape and all of this must have done the trick.They were super.I will look forward to making these again...Don
