"I doubled the recipe and used what ingredients I had on hand. I used walnuts instead of pecans, and raisins instead of dried blueberries. We don't do corn syrup and corn sugar, so I used locally 'grown' honey instead of corn syrup. The honey may have made them a little sweeter, so when I make them again, I'll use 1 1/2 teaspoons rather than 2. Even with all the changes, these were great!! We have a chicken farm, so we always have farm fresh eggs - and I like the idea of using wheat flour also!! Will do that next time."

"There are very tasty! I did change a few things, doubled the cinnamon and substituted the AP flour for whole wheat pastry flour. Next time I am doubling the recipe!"
