    These were amazing! They were so moist too. I didn't add the nuts or sprinkle sugar on top. I will omit oil and cut sugar in half next time. I did not use organic and I used light yogurt as well. They ended up being not too expensive to make, but it helps when yogurt goes on an amazing sale! - 11/1/08

    These are very tasty! Used Whole wheat flour instead of pastry flour and almonds since DH doesn't care for walnuts. I would make them again, and I want to try them with the walnuts because I am sure they would be great. I think raisins would be good too. My kids even Loved them. A Keeper! - 1/2/08

    I found the texture to be pretty gummy and not at all pleasant. I did not have nuts on hand so maybe that was a problem. For the amount of sugar, I thought they were actually rather bland. If I tried again, I would add extra spices, and definitely remember the nuts. - 5/2/10
