    So easy to make and very tasty. I look forward to one of these satisfying my afternoon sweet craving!  -  15 Mar 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy to make. I used nutmeg instead of cardamom, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest and I mixed in the coconut because it wouldn't stick to the outside.  -  26 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are delicious! The orange and cardamom just jump out and grab you. I dressed them up for Halloween by making faces with dried fruit and candied orange peel. Great recipe, thank you for sharing it with us.  -  19 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
