This recipe is almost identical to my Grandmother's. She also added 1/2 tsp of cloves, 1 cup of walnuts increased raisins to 1 cup. I make them for my brother's birthday - it's a family tradition.


These are tasty and addictive - I couldn't have just one or two! The only change I would make is by adding a bit more raisins next time (and I will definately make these again). Thanks for sharing these tasty little morsels!


I tried this cookie recipe with my 7 year old daughter because she had to make a healthy snack for brownies and needed me to help her with the cooking. Very simple recipe, easy to follow, no rolled oats (which was perfect for us) not to fond of rolled oats, and they tasted marvelous. The only thing different is that I soaked the raisins for 2 hours before making these cookies to make the cookie moist. OTher than that...we had a great time making them and my daughter received her cooking badge. Great cookies!From Saskatchewan
