I omitted the nuts because of the allergies at the school of my son. And I used only 1/2 cup of raisins. They are so yummy. I baked them 15 minutes and then let them rest on the baking sheet a few minutes before removing them to the cooling rack. Thanks Nancy :) made for Holiday tag game
Due to a cinnamon allergy and accidentally running out of molasses, I had to sub as follows: ginger for cinnamon, honey for molasses, golden raisins for raisins. The results were outstanding! Each cookie was topped with a walnut.**The cookies do spread and must be cooled on the sheet for two minutes before removing.**Thank you for posting. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.
Oh, dear, addictive does not nearly describe these! LOL I used beet molasses because that's what we usually have here, and used gluten free all purpose flour and half raisins and half craisins. SO good! Thanks for sharing :)

Spectacular! These were the perfect reward for me today! Easy to make and absolutely delicious. These cookies will be made again and again. Thanks for sharing!
Made these mostly to share during a weekly meeting my other half attends, & I followed the recipe right on down! Now that I know just how wonderful they taste, I'm ready to make another batch just for us here at home! These are absolutely great! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it!

Incredibly delicious and addictive !!! I omitted the nuts and used sultanas as I had no raisins. These were devoured when I took them to a family gathering.
What can I say? They're addictive! The taste has kind of a homey-feeling gingerbready sweetness to it. I was trying to cut down the fat, so I used margarine (technically, sunflower oil spread) instead of butter, but they still turned out quite nice. Hats go off to mom! Thanks a lot for posting!
I made these yesterday... and I plan to make them again for our holidays dessert platters to give out at Christmas. I actually had enough that hubby and I had our fair share, and I was able to give some to our new neighbors moving in next door. OMG... these are addictive (and I do not normally care for oatmeal raisin cookies). I went thru 2 tall glasses of milk with these beauties! (Basically, I made a meal of them). I did not use the optional nuts (and they were perfect as is). I'm not a baker, and I'm not sure what gives them the great taste (whether it is the molasses or the cinnamon, or the combo), but they are truly wonderful. A definite keeper! Thank you for posting.

These are SO SO SO good! We're eating them right now. So chewy and tasty! We added chocolate chunks instead of raisins. He says they are the best cookies he's ever had (oatmeal cookies are his favorite). I say they are the best oatmeal cookies I've ever had! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
