I had no eggs, so I needed a basic recipe w/o them. This one fit the bill. I love raisins, but my husband does not. Enter chocolate (of course), almonds and toffee. Double the milk and add cinnamon. YUM.

I was disappointed in this recipe. I tried it as written except for adding pumpkin pie spice, wich didn't spice it enough in my opinion. After baking the first batch of cokkies, I quickly added an egg to the rest of the dough to see if that made a difference. It made the cookies still puffy, but more cake-like. They were okay, but still not what I was looking for. I like my cookies flat and chewy rather than puffy and light. I will keep looking!

These cookies are fantastic! My sister and I were looking for some cookies to make, but didn't have any eggs in the ingredients. These worked wonderfully! I did change the recipe a bit, though. I added chocolate chips instead of raisins, added another 1/4 cup of milk, a few dashes of cinnamon, a teaspoon of banana extract, and added a 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Delicious!

These were pretty good considering there was no egg. I couldn't stop eating the dough it was so good! I did change the recipe like someone else did. Doubled the milk and added 1/2 cup (natural) peanut butter. I also soaked the raisins in water for a few minutes so they would plump.

Wow wow wow... such a great base recipe. I had no eggs and my husband was begging for oatmeal raisin cookies. Found this and used oil instead of butter, 1/2 sugar 1/2 agave, more oats less flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, dash salt, almond extract and vanilla extract and holy cow the house smells amazing and my hubby is killing the whole plate of em'! THANKS.

I didn't have any eggs, so I was looking for a cookie recipe that didn't call for them and came across this one. I was very surprised and pleased with how yummy they are!! They are so soft and chewy even the next day. I used chocolate chips instead of raisons, b/c my husband hates them (I bet they are so good with them though!), and he said that I needed to make them everyday...HA!

I fallowed the recipe to a T but subbed raisins for chocolate chips. I was craving a chew chocolate chip cookie but had no eggs on hand. They are not the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever had but for how simple the recipe is they are amazing cookies.

I did half a batch with raisins and the other half with chocolate chips. I also used oil instead of butter and the family loved them. My son insists we need to make them frequently.
