    easy and really tastey  -  20 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used pecans instead of walnuts, and changed the flour to be 1 cup rye flour and 2 cups all-purpose flour. These are easy to make! They have a wonderful smell and taste! I love the hidden surprise of the caraway seeds!  -  14 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
