Notes:
recipe adjusted from Epicurious, currant and spice oatmeal cookie.

interesting technique, soaking eggs and dried fruit for one hour along with extract. added orange liqueur for some zing. possible to use brandy or even bourbon whiskey?

possibly add some zest?

possibly can use raisin but will most likely have to reduce sugar by at least 1/4 cup as raisins are sweeter.
