MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 24, 2010

Unfortunately, these are too easy to be true. It seems that some ingredient must be missing. After following this recipe, the batter was a dry, floury mess. Nothing held together. Because I hate to waste, I added about a 1/4 c of butter flavored crisco and about a 1/4 coffee brandy, baked for 15 min. They weren't the best, but I did taste the prune in there. Would not make again, and think that taste of home should re-test this one.
