Hi, I make a double batch of these yummies almost every week. I am thinking of maybe adding some cranberries and nuts to the top to make them more Christmassy and gifting them. Do you think they would keep for 10 days in an airtight container if not gobbled up?

Many thanks to Julie202 for the info about making this recipe with Gluten Free flour. I'm not Coeliac, but friends & family are, so this information is very much appreciated.
Haven't made it yet, but tasted it today - a friend made it & told me it was the Donna Hay recipe, so I know it tastes great - will have a go at making it soon.
