These had an excellent flavor and chewy texture--on the outside edges that were cooked correctly. The middle was very "sludgy" and remained so even after an extra 15 minutes of cooking. I think next time I'll try it in an 11 x 7 pan, and perhaps drop the oven temperature to 325. I used dried cranberries, they were a wonderful replacement for the raisins.

These were good, but I think they would have been better if I'd followed the recipe exactly. I fudged a little on the brown sugar because I ran out, and so I added a cup of mixed powdered sugar and molasses. I do not recommend this, as the molasses takes over the flavor.
