I left out the walnuts and used whole raisins. They turned out great! They had a little bit of sugar cookie flavor to them. I converted the recipe to make 96 cookies and ended up with 13 dozen. Yeah! Small scoops bake into large beautiful cookies.

These were outrageously good! I don't normally like oatmeal raisin but I made these this morning for my mom in law who loves them. I followed the recipe (I put the raisins and nuts in the food processor)and maybe because I didn't bite into chewy raisins I loved it. Superb cookie recipe!

Wow!!!! These were wonderful. I chopped the raisins instead of grinding. Seemed to work well. One of the best cookie recipes that I have made. Wayne Kent
