The flavor is definitely 5 star, but I had some baking issues. Even when thoroughly chilled, mine spread like crazy and ran into each other, and were so moist and sticky they were difficult to get off the silpat. Used Crock Pot Apple Butter and whole wheat pastry flour. I think the type of apple butter probably affected my results and next time, I would add a bit more flour and possibly rolled oats for body, and omit the milk. Don't get me wrong, these were delicious with great fall flavors! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Thank you boyoumimi for a great fall cookie! I was looking for something easy to bake on this chilly day and since I had some apple butter that I needed to use up, these were perfect. At first I wondered if just 1/2 cup of apple butter would be enough seasoning to flavor these, but they turned out beautifully. Both DD's raved about them and I like them because they are not TOO sweet (the nuts and raisins add just the right touch). My only complaint is that the recipe doesn't make more of them! I guess I'll just have to double it next time - and there definately will be a next time!
