The key is, ADD MORE OATS!!!! Geez people... if you don't use walmust or rasins, you MUST replace taht item with something else... adding more flour will just make a tougher cookie!! ADD OATS!!!



I like this recipe but I used a trick taught to me by a danish grandmother. I take 3 eggs and whip them with vanilla and a tsp of water. then I soak the raisins in in egg mix for 45 min. I add the egg last to hold the dough together. this makes for very chewey and moist cookie



This recipe is the worst I have ever used. It should be pulled from here so other people don't waste time and money. I wasted money making 2 batches each Christmas having to throw them away. Take my advice and everyone elses on here and do not use this recipe unless you want to waste time and money. I give this recpie 2 thumbs down.
