OH my!!! These are SO good! I am really having trouble leaving these alone. I made the recipe as posted, no changes. This makes a lot of cookies. I love raisins, and this is the best raisin cookie recipe I've found!! Very easy. Thanks Friedel!! Definitely one I will repeat.
Very Good, but I reduced the oven to 300 degrees to prevent raisins from burning before the cookies were baked. I have a suspicion that my oven may bake "hotter than it should". Bernice
These are great cookies. I made them with 1 1/2 cups brown sugar and 1/4 cup of white sugar and added 1/2 tsp. allspice. They're nice and thick and soft with just a hint of spice. I cut back a bit on the nutmeg because I find it can be overpowering at times. The recipe says it makes 6 dozen cookies but I only got 34.
Awesome cookies!! Even the "I don't like raisins in my cookies" person in the household couldn't keep his hands off them. I halved the recipe, and all the water boiled off my raisins in the time allotted, but it still worked fine.
I make a lot of cookies, and can't believe I've made it this long without trying these cookies! They are really delicious! I halved the recipe and after mixing the batter it was really runny. I added a little more flour and it thickened up considerably. It still a little runny, but I went with it and the cookies turned out perfect! Great recipe SG! Thanks so much for posting it!
these cookies, are tasty. and soft. but the recipe, as others have noted, is pretty darn runny. on my third batch, i added more flour, and i am sure they willl be better. i would say dont add all the water from the raisins boil. its too much. this cookie IS VERY SWEET. but the good thing about that ( for me anyway) is that u won't want to eat too many lest u get sugared out. But these cookies, bc of all that sweetness, are good for a morning little sweet thing with milk or tea, or in the evening as well. IF i make this recipe again, I will make these alterations. It took me so much more time bc of all the runniness. Had to adjust the cooking time, and the ingredients. these cookies are also GREAT for someone, who, say just had some dental work done and has to watch their chewing capability and teeth at all. I could see the elderly maybe loving these.
Not terrible, but too sweet and unsubstantial. Maybe it's just personal preference, but I think these can't hold a candle to an oatmeal raisin cookie. Wouldn't bother making these again.
Great cookie dough although I didn't follow to the t<br/>Used 3/4 cup butter (all I had) and 1/4 cup of shortening <br/>Used 1 cup of sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar<br/>Added 1/2 tsp curry (I'll add a whole teaspoon next time)<br/>Next time I'll omit the walnuts.<br/>Over all easy no fail recipe
We LOVED these cookies! They are incredibly soft and flavorful. I used the shortening option and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for such a great keeper recipe!
