Delicious whole grain cookies your great-grandmother might have made... with a twist! Made with whole wheat, honey, sweet dried fruits, and black walnuts, this chewy cookie is sure to please. What a fun way to enjoy out-of-season fruit and eat a little more wholesome too! They remind me of growing up on my parents' little homestead in Missouri... my mother could do many amazing things with fruit, we never got tired of the same ol' thing with her cooking!
