I added this recipe to my Christmas cookie list. I made them early though and they are wonderful. Very moist. Thanks for sharing. This one is a keeper.

I hate leaving low stars but this recipe leaves one wanting. The potential for a delicious cookie is there, given the ingredients, but the result misses the boat. The cookies turned out surprisingly bland; the spices definitely need to be upped, or perhaps an addition of finely diced apples or ginger would give a kick. Also, the texture is a bit too spongy for my liking. This recipe pales in comparison to other autumn spice cookies and is not a keeper.

These don't spread and you end up with round little cookies. Perhaps if you used butter they would spread. I used my large cookie scoop and ended up with round little cookies and about 4 3/4 dozen of them (I increased the recipe by half). They aren't bad--a sweet, basic cookie. I used dried cranberries and a dried fruit mixture since I'm out of raisins. Thanks for the recipe!

When I first printed this recipe it stated that the yield was 60 cookies. I got 28 cookies that are 1 1/2 inches wide. The directions don't tell you when to add the raisins or walnuts. Recipes should be complete and accurate if they are posted
