I love this recipe. Although I'm not vegan, I often cook/bake for a friend who is. I substituted orange juice and zest instead of the liquor. Also, I left out the cranberries and nuts because I'm allergic. They turned out very good but I had to bake them about twenty minutes longer than suggested to get them to crisp up after cutting them. I even dipped some in dark chocolate to make them more dessert like.
