I'm considering making these part of Christmas gifts this year, but am unsure of what their shelf life might be. Any suggestions? http://www.realsimple.com...

Great question! I'd worry about the pecans and cheese getting a bit funky. Has anyone tried? Will someone do it for the sake of art and report back?

Pecans and cheese? I see figs and honey. I see these keeping fairly well.

I'm with nutcakes. I think these would keep for at least a week.

Agree with nutcakes & hardlikarmour. Nothing seems like it would spoil quickly, however they might get chewier over time as they loose moisture.

Yep, that's kind of what I was thinking, too. They sound really interesting but I haven't tried them yet; might make a wee batch tomorrow, let them sit for a week, and see how they hold up. Thanks, everyone! :-)

I think they'd last pretty close to forever if they are wrapped tightly

As long as a fruit cake.

The honey maximizes keeping qualities. If you are giving more than just a few, I would consider aluminum foil and/or a tin container.
