This makes a great cookie - my husband asked for another batch and it's hard to find a recipe he likes better than his mom's!

OMG! When the man in the house says 'keep that recipe' - it's a top 5 keeper! Fabulously easy; I baked them 11 to a sheet - 4 on the outside and 3 up the middle - giving them a bit of room to spread. Used a basic cookie scoop and packed them a smidge generous. Baked them 13 minutes per tray - and I put the upper rack 'up' a level. Came out chewy, not crisp (and I think these would be good crisp, too). I used dates and pecans as listed, but I'm positive that chocolate chips would be good as well. I'm putting this one in the holiday rotation this December. I expect my mom will be looking for the recipe.

Deeelicious! I used all butter, chocolate chips instead of the fruit and nuts, and subbed 1/4 c ground flaxmeal for 1/4 c of the flour. Got to love hidden goodness. These will be a new favorite cookie in our house.

Great Cookie! I substituted chocolate chips for the raisins and left out the nuts. Cookies have a nice chewy texture and the coconut adds nice flavor. I think this would be a GREAT bake Sale cookie :)
