These were very good! I use butter instead of shortening, and chopped, dried figs instead of walnuts. Tonight I am going with chocolate chips. Very good with a maple frosting also. Just 1/2 C icing sugar and about 1 Tbl maple syrup, and just enough water for drizzling consistency. Thanks for a great one! - 12 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are wonderful. I make them as bars in a 9 x 13 pan. Everyone loves them. The frosting is very sweet but delicious!! A+ - 03 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These cookies are so delicious!!... To ice them I dipped them in the pan I made the icing in, face down, while they were still a little warm.. I placed them on a rack with some tin foil underneath so the icing wouldnt drip on the counter... After I iced the last cookie I started over with the first and dipped them again.. They tasted like glazed doughnuts when they were completely cooled... I added them to my Christmas goodie, and had requests for the recipe.. Im gonna try them with mashed banana next time and then maybe a mixture of pumpkin and banana.. mmmmm Kiki (Brampton,ON Canada) - 05 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
