Very good cookie. For our family this was more a healthy cookie versus an indulgence. I think next time I would put equal oats and chocolate chips. They are a bit too crunchy for us and not sweet enough but still very good. The Crisco and the baking powder makes them poof up a bit which is nice. We ended up baking some at 12 minutes and some at 10. The ones at 10 seemed a better consistency. Thanks for posting fruitcake. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game May 2010 Enjoy! ChefDLH
