Very good - I agree with other reviewers to reduce the white sugar to 1/2 cup; even with the reduced amount was pretty sweet. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins. Chewy with a slight crispiness on top.
Update: Made some additional changes that I think add to the flavor: used 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup dried cranberries, omitted raisins, added 1/2 cup chopped pecans, and 1 tsp cardamom. Baked it slightly longer, about 15-16 minutes. This makes it a 5 star recipe in my opinion.
Update2: I thought I'd share my results with some additional modifications. I substituted almond butter for the butter (equal amounts) and added 1/4 cup honey to the 1/2 cup brown sugar, omitting the white sugar altogether. This gave me the same great chewy texture of the original cookie but with the added benefit and flavor of the almond butter. It's less sweet but the craisins make up for that. I also tried a version with 1/2 cup almond butter, 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. This produced a much drier cookie, almost like a granola bar, though still tasty.
