    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.

    Oh WC - these are such a yummy cookie. I added in a cup of chocolate chips and then used 1 cup of chopped walnuts. I halved the recipe (got 26 cookies with a med scoop) and now wished I had made the whole thing! They have a great texture - nice crispy outside with a soft inside. Love the addition of coconut! Also the touch of cinnamon and nutmeg are my favorites too! I'll be making these for holiday trays and gifts this year! Thanks for sharing. So glad I tagged you in 1.2.3 Hit Wonders.
