      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.
