I rarely visit recipes & in fact don’t ‘surf’ the forum at all, going to specific place to make a post or responding to a email notification.

Well it makes perfect sense that people would post porn in the recipe forum. When I figure it out I'll get back to you.

Russians are into porn? I thought that was Democrats.

Made the recipe today. Three hour+ job for me & that's cleaning up as I go. Just the one batch for work tomorrow, one more to go before Christmas for Tom.

If you ever do this, you can use the mixer blades until after the raisins, then the dough hooks for the pecans. The last step is the two pounds of walnuts and that has to be done by hand and it's work believe me. It's worth it, they're outstanding.

I go a little heavier on the spices too. And forget the spooning them on by teaspoonful, It would take forever and you'd have a thousand of them. I spoon on about biscuit size and you'll get about 70-80.

Found the bottle of Jack back in the corner of a top cabinet where I left it last Christmas. Had just enough to do the one batch so will have to visit the liquor store after all.
