    I have been making bean cookies for years, but have never found a recipe that was quite perfect. This one is by far the closest. The only modifications I made were:<br/>Double the cinnamon<br/>Double the vanilla<br/>A dash of nutmeg.<br/><br/>Also, "pizza" stones are THE BEST! They take a few uses to get them good and seasoned, but EVERYTHING we ever bake on them turns out perfect every time.<br/><br/>Even my husband LOVES this batch! They turned out so good, I joined

    We too loved these, Just made my third batch. Changed it up a little. Reduced brown sugar 1/4 cup and added 2T molasses. Added combo of 1 1/4 cup golden raisins and dried cranberry. Added just a few white choc chips. I soaked the dried fruit in a small pan w 1 1/2 T cherry concentrate ( Had this in the house, might have tried maple syrup if I didn't ) and heated it up until the juice had evaporated. This plumped up the fruit. This was really good. The recipe is also great as written.

    I really liked these, especially for their healthy ingredients. My family liked them, too. I didn't tell DH & DS what was in them, though!

    Absolutely delicious! DH said (in a rather surpized and shocked voice upon hearing what was in them), "these are really good!" And then, half hour later, "these cookies are really, really GOOD!" I added walnuts, raisins, dried cranberries, chopped white chocolate, and then purely by mistake (and a happy one), butterscotch chips. I also blended the beans (which I'd rinsed and drained) longer than the recipe suggested, to make sure they were completely disguised. Who'd have thunck it - bean cookies are AWESOME! Thanks so much for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2008 - you were adopted!
