"These had an excellent flavor and chewy texture--on the outside edges that were cooked correctly. The middle was very "sludgy" and remained so even after an extra 15 minutes of cooking. I think next..." See more time I'll try it in an 11 x 7 pan, and perhaps drop the oven temperature to 325. I used dried cranberries, they were a wonderful replacement for the raisins. "
"i made these for christmas and my family loved them, i love them! great recipe, i didn't have raisins so i didn't add those, but next time i might try them..." See more"
