1 1/2 teaspoons
pear - peeled, cored and diced
1 1/2 cups
2 1/2 tablespoons
Very good. Pears gave a light, sweet flavor while the spices added body. Yummy.
Good cookie for the fall. I just had one out of the oven. I made it without the frosting.
Yummy! What a great way to use up pears! I added lots more cinnamon and ginger, zest of an orange and golden raisins. I omitted the walnuts for my two year old, but they would've been great too. Hubby and child loved it - I'll definitely make this one again!!! Thanks for a great recipe!
Very good recipe. I did change part of it. I used 1/2c WW flour and 1c white. No nuts(allergies), added another diced pear. Did not use the icing (allergies again). The cookies were sweet enough that it does not need the icing. Next time I will reduce the amount of sugar. Thank you for the recipe! Perfect way to use up extra pears. :)
These tasted really good but as previous reviewers stated they were pretty soft and moist... wet really! It might've been my juicy (over-ripe?) pears tho, will try "drier" pears next time.
Very much a favorite at our house. I tend to use a bit more pears and then bake it as a bar cookie. But either way it's delicious and my kids gobble it up.
Not sure what I did wrong, but the dough came out very crumbly. There was no way that it could have been "dropped" at all. I made it into a bar cookie, but that came out more cake-ish, and took twice as long to cook. I like the taste, and I will probably make this again just to see if I did it wrong the first time.
I am not usually of fan of soft cookies, but these were great. I used dark brown sugar and dried cranberries instead of raisins. They were so moist. I did not use the glase as they were plenty sweet on their own. Very nice change from the oatmeal raisin. Excellent autumn cookie.
