Made these to have for a monthly group I host & they were a big hit! With the exception of using a bit more than 1 1/2 cups of raisins, I did follow the recipe, though another time, closer to mid-December, I'd like to substitute (as did another reviewer) dried cranberries for the raisins! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

Very good granola bar like cookie. I used 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup margarine in place of the shortening. I also used pecans instead of walnuts and added in some dried cranberries. I love the cinnamon/nutmeg flavor. Made for the Holiday tag game.

Really great cookies and very easy to convert to gluten free. I added 2 T of ground flax seed (something I almost always do to help with the lack of gluten) and subbed chocolate chips for the raisins (they're not my favorite in cookies). I also refrigerated the dough for about an hour before I baked them. Made for the winner of 1~2~3 Hits It's Not Easy Being Green ~ March 2010.
