    Delicious. Easy. Smells awesome while baking. I made these for gifts and everyone commented back on how wonderful these tasted. I left off the struesel topping.

    This recipe is worth buying the mini-loaf pans if you don't already have them.

    I made these last year for Christmas gifts, but they never made it! My family and I ended up eating all of them! We will definitely try again this year, but make extra for us to enjoy. This is a great recipe.

    I used this recipe to make 6 jumbo muffins instead. They tasted wonderful! I replaced the granulated sugar with splenda, swapped out the sour cream for 1 cup of plain nonfat yogurt, used only 1 cup of dried cherries (the extra half a cup is unnecessary), and used 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/4 cup applesauce in the muffin batter instead of a full 1/2 cup melted butter. I also reduced the streusel topping by half (I did not need all of it for the muffins). Slightly healthier and OH-SO-GOOD!

    I just make these and they taste great, but I thought there was way to much dry fruit (I used cranberries). Also, next time I'll fine chop the pecans for the topping and batter.

    I baked them in cupcake tins, about 18 cupcakes total!!! Just great!!! To get a reacher flavor out of them, warm them up in the electric oven for a few seconds. They even freeze perfect!

    This bread is perfect to give away as gifts. I didn't like the dried cherries though because it ended up being slightly bitter. Take out the cherries and it's an awesome pecan streusel bread. Especially the topping!!!
