Good cookies. The dough was a bit crumbly before I added the flour at the last step and I thought that it would not come together to form a dough. But I shouldn't have worried, it came together perfectly. I got 84 cookies to the delight of my colleagues. They are chewy, tasty and they do not get dry, crispy when stored. I(stored a couple just to see how they "aged"). Thanks for posting. Made for PAC, Fall 2009.
Mmm, these cookies are really, really yummy! They are crunchy and a little bit soft on the inside with a great oaty, raisin taste! The cinnamon and vanilla add a great flavour and make these cookies special! I made half the recipe and got 21 medium cookies. Other than reducing the sugar to 20 g (1/8 cup) I stuck to the recipe and it was perfect! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Chef! Ill surely make it again!
