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 kittencalskitchen.com

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.

Wow! These cookies are delicious! Very chewy and fruity and nutty and yummy! The only change I made was to use craisins instead of raisins because I had a ton in the house and we like them better anyway. I like the fact that it only uses egg whites (gave the yolks to the dogs). I used canola oil so this was also a heart-healthy recipe for us. I used parchment paper on the cookie sheet so cut out that bit of fat as well. I've got these babies stashed in the freezer now and we'll be taking them with us to the gym (not ALL of them, just two or three) for a quick bit of energy. I love these, Dorothy, thanks!
