I made this because one of the reviewers was from massachusetts and said it was just how she remembered them. I'm from massachusetts, lived in 2 different towns 2 cities and these are not how I remembered them at all. These were not as flavorful/spice-filled as I remembered also the the texture was off and hermits were bars not cookies. These were ok, but they weren't hermits to me.

Thanks, Dawn. Just baked the cookies and they are just what I was looking for as part of a gift for my son-in-law. I had a recipe for Hermits years ago but was unable to find it. I am very pleased with the results that I got with these cookies. Claudine B. - TX
