GREAT recipe. I tweaked it: not a big peanut butter fan, so I used 1/2 cup peanut butter and about 1 cup pumpkin, so I didn't need the extra liquid. I didn't have wheat germ so I added an extra 1/2 cup of finely chopped nuts. I used dried mixed fruit - raisins, dates, pineapple, mango, coconut, cherries, cranberries and apricots. I added about 1 cup of chopped mixed nuts. I also doubled the cinnamon and added about 1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg. I made them slightly smaller and was able to get 17 big cookies out of the recipe; as such, they only baked for about 13 minutes. I would like to play around with this recipe to lower the fat and calories.. the nutrition info is the only drawback to this recipe. Also - I would suggest that as soon as these cookies cool, they should be stored in an airtight container, otherwise they dry out fairly quickly. Other than those drawbacks, this is a DEFINITE keeper!!
