      These are absolutely divine! If you like Oatmeal cookies, you'll love these!!! DH doesn't really care for cooked raisins, so I left them out, but I think as well as he liked these, I'll give a few raisins a go too next time. I couldn't believe how fast these went. Within minutes after the first batch came out of the oven they were gone. They turned out soft and chewy. I used Granny Smith apples, my favorite for baking and the cookies weren't too sweet, nor the apples too tart. I thought everyone would have had their fill and I'd have some for DH's lunch tomorrow. NOT!!! Thanks for sharing a really great and healthy recipe Karen!

      Amazing. Fluffy and on the lighter side. I loved these. I made one change though, I used half of the shortening and added a half a cup of unsweetened applesauce. Delicious and healthier too :) I didn't put raisins or nuts in it, which made the cookie lighter. I highly recommend using applesauce or apple butter!

      These cookies are "quite good" as my husband says. I made a few changes as I am always tweaking recipes to make them more heart healthy. I added flaxseed, reduced the brown sugar by 1/4 cup, used homemade applesauce for 1/4 cup of the shortening and 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour. These cookies are so good I think we'll have them for breakfast!
