  • Hermit bars

      These were good, but they're not my dream hermits. My dream-hermits are fudgy and a bit chewy. Wanting to make sure these didn't dry out, I checked them after 20 minutes and pulled them immediately - 10 minutes before the 30 minutes called for in the recipe. The central third was moist and fudgy though unfortunately not chewy. It then got drier and more cake-like away from the center. Nice dark spice flavors, though I missed the bite that comes from using some ginger and/or black pepper and the bit of bitterness from using walnuts vs. pecans. I skipped the glaze because I found the bars to be sweet enough without it. I prefer Carole Walters' hermits recipe to this one, though I'm still hunting for that dream recipe...

      These are not sweet. I won’t make them again.
