I just tried these this morning and for the first try they were pretty awesome. I usually follow recipe exactly the first time to see what I really want to tweak, but this time I followed a couple suggestions. For myself, I used whole wheat flour the first time so I'd never know the difference, pretty dang good there. (one excuse to allow these on school mornings.) I didn't mess with the currants, raisins, etc. although a sprinkling of chopped nuts might be nice the next time.
Dough was very sticky as almost all the others have said; I didn't add flour to the dough but floured the work surface heavily and kept "flouring" my hands as I went; so in the end it probably amounted to the same thing.
Other reviewers are correct it doesn't take 20-25 min; I pulled them out at 18 min. and that was a close one, 16 min. would've been fine.
The cinnamon brown sugar on top was DIVINE; but as one other reviewer suggested, pop them out of the tray immediately; don't even wait a minute- and eat while warm...the "crust" was chewy and amazing.
Finally our personal preference was a thick glaze of icing covering the top (my daughter wants nothing to do with drizzling...the girl likes her icing.) I added vanilla to deepen the icing flavor a little.
One thing I'll try next time is "grease" the pan with butter and then "flour" it with cinnamon sugar...might add some zing to the doughy sides.
Easy and great recipe!
