  1. AWESOME cookie. It has bits of everything in it LOL I didn't use nuts but will next time. I made half the recipe and ended up with 3 dozen cookies. These would make a GREAT cookie for lunch bags to replace those store bought granola bars. This will be a definite addition to our family cookbook. Thanks for posting I used this recipe for "My 3 chefs"challenge 2008
  2. Pretty decent flavor but I agree about there being too much nutmeg. I would try 1/2 of the amount if i made these again. We doubled the recipe and after the first test batch we added a two more teaspoons of cinnamon and it still wasn't balanced .Also in case you're wondering, the recipe makes 3 dozen large cookies (what does 12 servings mean? Is a serving 3 large cookies?) plus 1 giant half sheet cookie (just for fun).
  3. Very yummy cookies. I used Recipe #492442 for the applesauce and ask for spice. they came out soft and delicious. DH has already scarfed a huge handful. I didn't add any nuts as DH doesn't like them and we are both very happy with them. I replaced all sugar with Splenda in both recipes.
  4. This recipe was perfect. I doubled the recipe cause Iwas making a snack for my 1st grader to take as a snack . When doubled it made alot! but its ok my whole family loved them and the best part,I have enough batter for the entire week! They are sooooo soft almost like little cakes. I added the raisins and choclate chips.! thanks for this recipe!
  5. Not really my thing but good. I think it has a little too much nutmeg and I had to bump my oven temp up to 350 degrees and cook a lot longer but I was cooking on Pampered Chef stoneware. I also did not grease the sheet since there is so much shortening in the recipe and I did not have a problem getting the cookies off the sheet. Thanks!


  1. Oops in my previous tweak I said we added 4 cups of nuts but that was for a double batch!
  2. Reduce the nutmeg. We added 4 cups of toasted pecans which added both flavor and texture.
