Use them in any recipe that calls for raisins. Muffins, bread pudding, oatmeal cookies, banana nut bread, spice cake all come to mind. I think I'm hungry!

We get by with a little help from our friends

They can be subbed for any other dried fruit (raisins). I had some oatmeal cookies with dried cranberries this summer and they were fantastic.

Thanks for the responses everybody. I made some scones this morning. It was really easy. The recipe I found was very simple. More or less a biscuit with fruit in it. The teenagers gobbled them up, so I guess they turned out well enough.

It too late for my suggestion. Well, I would suggest the same thing as cupcakes topped blueberry or cherry. Also, you can make a cheese cake out of it. :)
