    I had to lessen the cooking time a bit as the bottoms kept burning, but my stove is old & unreliable, so it may have just been me. Besides that, decent cookies.

    I made these in the 60's for my little ones figured they were getting their fruit and enjoying it at the same time - they are a soft cookie - worth a try.

    Very good and tasty. Like eating little crunchy fruit cakes. I will be adding this to my cookie collection. Thanks for the recipe Countrywife!
