  1. I didn't include nutmeg and raisins. These are easy to make and tasty.
  2. HELPFUL TIPS NOT MENTIONED: This is wonderful for toddler playgroups because it's healthy & about the only yummy dish that doesn't contain something someone is allergic to (obviously there's no need to add nuts)! The kids all prefer craisins, and don't complain when I use wheat flour! If you do add nuts, pecans tend to - Read more ...
  3. YUM. We went apple picking yesterday and I've been in a baking frenzy... so glad to have found this recipe! I made a bunch of modifications so that the cookies would be super-appley.

  7. We loved them the way the recipe is written
  8. These cookies are delicious- a little like molasses cookies with fruit. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe except maybe to double it. It's clear they aren't going to hang around my house for long!
  9. These cookies are delicious. Very moist and chewy. I also made them into bars once when I was in a hurry. Worked out well.
  10. These cookies are delicious-quite a compliment coming from a devout chocolate lover! Because I am not wild about cloves, I did cut the amount called for in the recipe by half-and I used dark brown sugar. My family loved them!A wonderful cookie for the fall season! Can't wait to make them again!
