      Heavenly! I used 2 cups whole wheat flour instead of the 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, and they turned out perfectly. These are very beautiful for a Christmas or holiday goody, and I think I'm going to add this to the usual list of treats I make for gifts each year.

      These came out scrumptious! Next year I`ll bake them in a larger pan. So I`d have more bars to go around. They do rise alot! Great!

      Having a coffee and a marzipan bar as I sit and type this, mmm mmmm, the marzipan flavour through this bar is divine. I used rum and craisins. Very good!
