I give these a 3 out of 5 stars for the cookies alone but when I added Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting on top of these cookies they become a 4 out of 5 stars. The cookies had an interesting texture due to the cream of wheat but there is not alot of flavor. They kinda taste like plain applesauce cookies. I added chocolate chips to 1/2 the cookies to make them a little sweeter because we didn't use raisins. I would make these again but definately with chocolate chips &/or frosting. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it was worth trying.
