Directions

  1. Soak raisins in a bowl of warm water until plump, about 30 minutes. Drain and pat raisins dry with a towel.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Beat butter and both sugars with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended; beat vanilla extract in with the second egg.
  4. Combine oats, flour, walnuts, coconut, five-spice powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir egg mixture into oat mixture until well mixed. Fold in raisins and mix until just incorporated.
  5. Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Not very impressed with this recipe. I am wondering if something was left out. The dough did not seem stiff enough and the cookies were very thin and flat. The recipe said use an ungreased pan and there was no way this worked. The picture with the recipe showed cookies baked and then cut into bars but the recipe said drop by rounded spoonfuls . Would be interested in hearing comments from other cooks who tried this recipe.
