MY REVIEW

"They are very moist and really easy to make.I used frozen cranberries and lots of pecans."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 27, 2012

"Fluffy and delicious. I used the pecans as part of the topping rather than folding them into the batter, but otherwise folowed the recipe exactly."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 1, 2011

"Yes, but I always switch out the cranberries and the pecans. I used sun dried cherries and walnuts instead. Delish! I tried this recipe with the cranberries and the pecans, but the cherries and walnut provide more flavor. The sweetness of the cherries just burst in your mouth!"
