I'm also curious Lurker as to the feedback that you got from "consumers". Iv'e always loved to cook, but baking is a whole new world for me, and I'm entering that world with some trepidation.
Last year I made my very first pie crust from scratch...it was really yummy, and I filled it with a delicious pork-pie filling ( my husband's nirvana). But since then I've tried 3 more times to make pie crust and have failed utterly.
Hence my continued reluctance to enter into the "baking world".
If I'm going to try making something new, I need reassurance that it will come out "as advertised"...!
Thanks for your patience!

I liked it, and so did the people who got over the "fruitcake" stigma and had some. I'm considering making a variation of it for Purim, when you typically eat nuts and fruits. The candied fruit won't be available, but dried fruits always are. The best part was that it was easy and came out exactly as expected. Recipes from ingredient companies (in this case the flour) usually work well because they're trying to sell a product.

I hear you on the piecrust, gryhnd. Sometimes mine are good, sometimes they aren't. Unless it's an unusual shape or needs a top crust, I just buy the ones pre-pressed into tins. At the very least, they are a whole lot prettier than mine.
