Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 - Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I chose this recipe for Day 4 of the Canadian Challenge. The ZWT is a great way to find hidden gems such as this one....these are one of the BEST cookies I've EVER eaten! The chocolate covered raisins are a clever (& delicious) touch. I used a mixture of chopped walnuts & pecans in these. I also used slightly less sugar - a little over 1/2 a cup & added a tiny touch of maple syrup. I decided to use a bit extra oats & a rounded tbsp of extra flour - the resulting cookies spread but not so much as to cause a problem. Thanks for an amazing cookie recipe :)

I made a half recipe exclusively for DH and he didn't hesitate to bestow 5 stars after sampling. Then he said "They sure are sweet! I won't be eating these as fast as usual" but he firmly stuck with 5 stars. If this man commented on over sweetness, I'd advise caution. As to my part of the review: I must say that these REALLY spread, fast and far. The dough mounds on the sheet started out at about 3/4 inch high and I ended up with pretty much one cookie of baking sheet size. I'd say to cut back on the butter/shortening or up the amount of flour. I took mine out at 8 mins and got crispy edges on very soft, chewy cookies, perfect! I omitted the nuts because DH isn't a nut fan. I used 2- 50g boxes of Raisinettes for 18 cookies and the chocolate didn't melt at all. Made for Photo Tag.
