Very nice raisin cookie. I only had a 1/2 cup of walnuts so that's all I used. I would also recommend letting the raisin mixture cool before you add it to the batter. I didn't and it made my batter very runny so I stuck it in the fridge to cool it down. The cookies baked up fine but it took a lot longer since I had to wait for the batter to cool before I could bake the cookies.
