Has anyone ever tried Nabisco Lorna Doone shortbread cookies? How about Kraft Caramels? Personally, I'm real hesitant about these two products. Has anyone eaten them regularly without problems?
As for the recipe, I've made the Twix bars, but I had to get going from scratch with the caramel and shortbread. They were good, but it was real tedious work! Any help concerning these products would be appreciated.

Ryan's Mom, thank-you for raising those questions. I have never even seen Lorna Doone shortbread cookies in Canada. Nabisco in Canada is really food allergy aware so if we did have them and they were labeled as "safe" then I would feel okay about using them. But, especially lately, I have been reading not great things about Nabisco U.S. so I think I too, would be hesitant. Has anyone ever read a label on them or contacted Nabisco U.S. re them in particular?
Also, Kraft Canada is really allergy aware and despite being one of our large pb manufacturers, also is involved in different educational things re PA. The Kraft caramels here, in Canada, are "safe". I can't remember having read anything on the board about Kraft U.S. and whether they are considered "safe" or not. Again, it would be good if someone could either check the label or contact Kraft re the caramels in particular.
I would do this for you, but it doesn't make much sense because the answers I get from the Canadian companies may be drastically different from what you get from the same company in the U.S.
I'm going to e-mail this particular page to a PA parent friend of mine in the U.S. whose comfort zone I would consider tighter than mine and see if she's able to help us out.
And I have to say, with you checking out all the recipes and actually posting replies and some even confirming that the recipe is "tried and true", I feel I should get back to posting the rest of the recipes I have left to post from that particular cookbook. Thank-you! [img][/img]

thanks for this recipe Cindy! Much easier than the one I posted in another thread :-)
happen to have a recipe for homemade Kit Kats? (I've never found a package that didn't have a warning on it...)

ajgauthier, no, but I could re-raise the Smarties exchange thread under Main Discussion and you could have some kindly Canadian send you some. [img][/img]

I made this recipe for my ds yesterday. He loved them. The only problem is his brother and father loved them too!

We just tried Lorna cookies this week and my PA,TNA, & egg allergic daughter loves them. No issues, but I trust Nabisco at this point and the ingredients are safe plus no warnings on the box. I'm in the US.
