    ~heidi~'s Note:

    The orange flavored raisins make these so good. Make sure to soak them at least 15 minutes! EDIT: I tried these with cranberries and they do not work as well as the raisins. I would imagine any *dried* fruit would work best, since letting it soak in liquid (triple sec) reconstitutes its moisture, whereas cranberries will not absorb as much liquid. Hope that helps!

      We really liked these! It was a little sweet for our taste, so in the second batch I added two tablespoons of lemon juice, and one teaspoon of grated lemon rind. Perfection!
