This isn't bad (well, the dough is, but the cookie's pretty good). It is cakey and I don't care too much for cakey, so it gets a 3 instead of a 4. I did have to make it a chocolate chip cookie instead of raisin because the kids won't eat raisin cookies, they've eaten half of them already. Overall it was fun to try


I have tried this cookie recipe and I discovered that I did not like these cookies at all.


Well, I suppose if you submit a recipe this out of the ordinary, you have to be prepared for people not to like it. That said, I'm sorry, but we are among those people. I cut the recipe down and used butter and currants instead of golden raisins. While the butter might change the texture, it shouldn't change it to more cake like, which is what these cookies were. That isn't "bad", in itself, as I know some folks prefer that type, however, the taste of these is just not to our liking. We could certainly taste the ketchup, they were very, very sweet, and the nuts, especially, just didn't seem to go. Or, rather, the ketchup didn't go, but since it's a vital ingredient to the recipe, you can't omit it. :) It was fun to try, and an interesting addition. Thank you!
