These are AWESOME. First of all, DOUBLE it. Otherwise, they will disappear the first day you make them. I tried to make it somewhat healthier which USUALLY means "yuck". Not this time. Here's what I did: added chopped walnuts, added ground flax, used whole wheat flour, substituted about 1/4 of the butter for unsweetened applesauce, and added unsweetened coconut. I also didn't add any white sugar at all. I stuck with the amount called for in regards to brown sugar. They were still sweet enough. My new favorite cookie! YUM
One word to sum it up - DELICIOUS! Good ol' Starbucks never fails. And thanks to Chef amfox for posting! I only had golden raisins so omitted dark, and didn't use the extras for topping because it seemed enough to me. I just finished baking them (15minutes) and have already eaten 3! And I'm meant to be giving these away too. Photos don't do these cookies justice - you have to try them for yourself, they're worth it
These are very good. I substituted 1/4 cup of thin shredded carrots for raisins and taste very good. my kids loved them. You can't taste the carrots if you add them.
