Okay, here are my changes to the recipe. I only used a 1/2 tsp cinnamon, but I wish I'd used the 3/4 tsp listed. I couldn't really taste the spices as much as I would have liked. I also used 1/4 tsp allspice because I don't have any cloves and 3/4 butter instead of shortening for the same reason. I added 1 tsp vanilla and left out the walnuts and raisins which was probably a mistake too. I also added 1/3 cup butterscotch chips and 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips just because I had them to use up. I left the first batch in for 10 minutes. They came out soft and doughy but still good. I thought they might taste better crispy so I left the second batch in for 12 minutes. They came out crispier but still soft. I got 4 dozen out of the batter (my cookies are somewhat small) then decided to use the rest to make 3 regular size muffins which I left in for 16 minutes. They came out very heavy; it will be interesting to see how they taste. Overall, they weren't as spicy as I was hoping, and I guess I should have left in at least the raisins and the full amount of cinnamon. I gave these a 4 though because I imagine they'd taste better if I followed the recipe better...
