MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2013

We love these cookies! I always make them at Christmas time but we love them year round. Being able to make the dough the day before I bake them is always appreciated. Love the hint of nutmeg in them.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2008

These are my husband's favorite cookie. He will buy the candied fruit as a hint that he would like me to make some for him.
