Great lower-fat cookie! I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins and chopped pecans for the walnuts, which worked great. Wonderful flavor and VERY EASY to make. :) Made for Cookie tag at

delicious and low-guilt. I added a bit of "the usual" spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves - and baked for 13 minutes. 3 down, trying to stop now :) ps 4 days later tried it with 2 eggs and a bit less oil. The dough is much stickier though refusinng to coalesce into a cookie, but no reals difference in taste.

Sweet, chewy and wholesome...I couldn't ask for more in a cookie. The recipe was a cinch to make with all the ingredients coming together well, making it easy to drop tablespoons full on the cookie sheet. Because I don't like raisins, I used dried blueberries instead. My DH snagged one while it was still hot out of the oven...and then he grabbed another one...and another. We loved that this sweet used oil and not shortening or butter, and that egg whites, not yolks were called for, which really lowered the cholesterol. Thanks a whole bunch for providing us with a tasty and healthy cookie.
