I had to make adjustments based on what was in the house. Thankfully, all of them resulted in a better cookie than I would have gotten if I had stuck to the given recipe! I only had one stick of butter, which turned out to be a good thing from the reviews of greasiness. I've learned to always use at least 1 tsp of cinnamon. I wondered if they were really serious with that 3/4 tsp.? I also added nutmeg. The only white sugar I had was powdered, so I used it and am glad I did. My butter wasn't soft and I think that was a good thing. I melted it down some on the warmer and then just cut up the rest of the cold butter into cubes. I also simmered the raisins in warm water and cinnamon so they would be plumper, which is good. I let the batter rest so it wasn't too runny before I put it on the cookie sheet. I usually make cookies bigger than the recipes and that avoids them being too crispy - a good call for this particular recipe! I fit about six on a cookie sheet. The baking time was off so I just baked until they didn't look raw in the middle. With these changes to the given recipe, the taste was great and so was the texture. They weren't too crispy and didn't stick to the cookie sheet. I ended up with yummy, chewy cookies that my family loved. Unfortunately, this recipe needs too many changes in order to have yummy chewy cookies. Next time I will just use the box top recipe. I'm not printing this one out or saving it.
