The recipe needed a lot more flour (at least a total of 3 cups); they came out as flat as florentines but I don't think that is how they were intended.
This makes a lot of batter and if you like the 'yummy' part of the cookie best, this is the cookie for you! Made for Freezer Tag, so froze some of the dough and scoops of dough for later. I recommend thawing and baking, or watching carefully so some of the 'goodies' don't burn while they bake if you try it from frozen. I used dried cranberries for raisins, salted butter and a pecan/peanut mix. These qualify as "man -cookies" if you want to make your sweetie's sweet-tooth happy!
The dough was so good, I could have eaten it out of the bowl (I did have to use egg replacer)! I used w.w. pastry flour, 3/4 C margarine and 1/2 C olive oil (it made it even softer), 1 1/2 cup chopped almonds, 1 cup chopped pecans (so kids would eat it), 1 1/2 C golden raisins, and 1 pkg choc. chips. I used an ice cream scoop and it still made 38 cookies. The kids are begging for more! :)
