My boss is Jewish and when Jewish holidays come I like to fix something special for him and his family. My boss and his family loved them. In fact my boss and his 8 year old daughter were scolded for sneaking off with them and not sharing. I did have to bake them longer then the 15 mins it was closer to 25-30 minutes. I did try them while I was putting the gife basket together and they were wonderful. But everbody has enjoyed them great recipe. Thank you. Read More

I made this recipe last night mainly because it had a low calorie fat and carb count. I modified it a little by using toasted sliced almonds and dried cranberries and dried pineapple instead of dates. It is strong in almond flavor but I love almonds so no problem for me. I think this recipe could be easily adapted for biscotti so I may try baking them again to try that. Read More

I like that these have no added fat. The texture still has that characteristic almost rubbery feel of no-fat baked goods but the honey adds moistness and gives the bars a very nice flavor. Like the other reviewers I had to bake these for a full 30 minutes before they were done. Read More

I baked for 15 minutes but that was not near enough time. I had to bake them an additional 10 minutes. 2 teaspoons of almond extract is just to much. I would not make them again. Read More
