I found this recipe in the 2002 Holiday Baking Cookbook. Very easy to make and the fact you can substitute dried cranberries, cherries or any dried fruit you want really makes this recipe versatile.

These are very good. The only thing I will have to do differently next time is to reduce the heat as these burned after 10 mins. but my oven is touchy. Thanks for posting the recipe.
