I made several modifications and received excellent complements: Added 1 tsp vanilla; used cinnamon flavored applesauce; decreased ground cinnamon to 1/2 tsp; added 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg &1/4 tsp ground cloves; used Craisins instead of raisins and toasted the walnuts. These cookies do not spread. The first batch at teaspoon size seemed alittle too small. After that I used a scoop that's a tad over a tablespoon. Baking time 10-11 minutes.

First, I found greasing the sheets to be a mistake. It's not necessary and results in an almost black cookie bottom. If you leave the sheets UNGREASED, they will turn a nice medium brown on the bottom instead. Next, I added a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for a little more flavor. Finally, I made a second batch, leaving out the raisins and nuts, which we liked even better, and made them more toddler friendly. Over all, a good, soft, not too sweet cookie.

I just baked these cookies and they are really good. I read some other reviews and altered the recipe a bit. Replaced shortening with 2 sticks of butter, melted. Added more cinnamon, 1/4 tsp grnd Nutmeg and Cloves, 1 tsp vanilla, and used slivered almonds instead of walnuts (I was out). I also sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. Yummy! Next time I will make some butter frosting for these cookies.
