I like to add more of the fruit and nuts as well as extra oats for a slightly chewier cookie. But thanks Mary, I liked them.


These are very good cookies. I used cranraisins instead of raisins and did not grind them. To make life easier instead of using a pastry blender to cut in the shortening I put 4 cups of the flour into the food processor and gave it a couple of flicks and it was all cut in perfectly and quickly. I did not use the egg wash either. Cookies were good and will use the recipe again simply because it makes a big batch of good cookies.


Kids LOVED these! I made almost exactly (I didn't have peanuts so substitued almonds instead). The only problem I encountered was that it took 12 minutes to bake as opposed to 8-10 as indicated. Minor issue as my oven could just be a bit "slow". My kids told me that they taste just like Christmas cookies. A very good cookie indeed!
