These cookies are very simple but delicious!! I didn't use cinnamon or nutmeg and although some people may have thought this recipe may be tasteless, I loved it! However, if you love flavor, then you may try the cinnamon and nutmeg although I would recommend this cookie without them as well! This recipe may be to huge so you may cut it in half or I even made 1/4 of it and still got 8 medium sized cookies. Enjoy!

These cookies were made as one of a handful of items served for a small group I host each month, otherwise I'd have eaten them all myself! I like the spices, but cut the amount of each, using only 1/2 tsp of cinnamon & 1/8 tsp of nutmeg. LOVE THOSE RAISINS! The cookies were a nice change from the usual oatmeal-raisin cookies. Thanks so much for making this recipe available!!
