      Mmmmm. Good. Stayed soft too. Adaptations: 1 cup butter, omitted the shortening; decreased the granulated sugar to 1/2 cup (may omit next time as was still quite sweet), substituted whole wheat flour (gives a nice flavor), for spices used 1 tsp. Hokan Five Spice Powder (fennel seed, star anise, ginger, cloves, cinnamon) since others weren't handy. Raisins really good plumped first in water to keep moist, avoid getting hard and burned from baking.

      I did not use raisins or cranberries. I had no vanilla and replaced vanilla with 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. Still was a hit with the kids.

      Fantastic cookies! I used only cinnamon and allspice since I had no cloves. They also were quite sweet so I think I would use a tad less sugar in the future. Thanks for the recipe.
