This recipe is pretty good but being me I had to jazz it up a little, I added CinnaRaisins (from Dole) and Hersheys Cinnamon Chips. The dough was very much like a quick bread batter, very soupy so I added 3 cups of Oatmeal to make this recipe just a bit more healthy than the origional and to give it a little more body. I did chill as suggested and the cookies came out wonderful very cake like and chewy.


This recipe was unique and yummy! I am sure the recipe would be great as is, though I did make some changes. First, I used butter instead of shortening. Then I used 1 1/4 cups sugar instead of 2 cups. I used half whole wheat flour, half white and omitted the walnuts (personal taste). I also added 1 1/4 cups oatmeal and 1/4 cup wheat germ, just for the sake of trying it. They turned out great, with a nice cakey texture to them. A day later, the cookies had dried out significantly, so maybe cook less than usual so they remain moist (?)


This is wonderful recipe. The cookies are like little cakes in texture. I halved the recipe and it worked out fine. Enjoy!!
