    HeatherFeather's Note:

    When I purchased a bottle of Chinese 5-spice powder from my Watkins lady, this is the recipe that came with it. Chinese 5-spice is a blend of aromatic seasonings and includes the licoricy taste of star anise. You can find Chinese 5-spice prebottled in many grocery stores or at an Asian market (or from your local Watkins rep).

      I LOVE me some 5 spice oatmeal cookies! These are really good! Good old oatmeal cookie texture but with a little added kick. I followed the recipe exactly, no need to change a thing. I baked my half for 13 minutes (I like soft cookies) and my husbands half 16 minutes (he likes 'em crisp). Thank you for sharing.

      I saw a discussion about this recipe on one of the boards and then saw 5-Spice in the grocery store shortly after and just knew that I HAD to try these. Am I ever glad I did!!! My DDs had used up all of my almonds so I decided since the nuts were to be ground and seemed to be part of the 'dry' ingredients to provide the right consistency that I shouldn't reduce the black walnuts I had elected to substitute (I normally reduce black walnut subs to half of what is called for in recipes because of the intensity of their flavor). Heather had said these were peppery so I was expecting 'hot', but they weren't at all. They were just very strong and delightfully seasoned. The flavor of the 5-Spice was so intense that the black walnuts only gave a hint of their existence in the cookies. My DDs have always claimed they absolutely DO NOT like black walnuts, but they sure do now and they don't even know it yet. I had made several different kinds of cookies and these the favorites of almost everyone in the house. Thanks for sharing such a delicious recipe Heather!!!
