    flower7's Note:

    I *love* these cookies! They are chewy, chunky, spicy, and delicious! The recipe originally came from Betty Crocker's Cooky Book and were listed as "The Best Cooky of 1900-1910". For a change, try substituting cut-up dates or other dried fruits for the raisins. NOTE: If you replace the shortening with butter as many reviewers have done, you will probably get a crispier vs. chewy cookie.

      Fantastic! I love the flavours and texture of this. I played with it a bit, using butter, reducing sugar to 1 cup, using 3/4 c. whole wheat flour, adding some flax seeds and throwing in some crystalized ginger. Delicious!

      I was so excited to make these cookies. I followed the recipe except I left out the raisins. They spread out on the pan where the cookies just ran into each other. They were paper thin. Maybe I did something wrong but I don't think I'll spend time making these again. Sorry.

      So good, my friends call me Betty Crocker so it seems to fit! I am trying to bump up my son's iron intake so I used blackstrap molasses and whole wheat flour. I didn't use the chocolate chips, I didn't have any. I think my iron is going to be up too!
