First, I did make a couple of changes to this recipe. I didn't have ground clove, so I doubled the cinnamon instead. Also, I had no real butter in the house so I used all butter-flavored Crisco instead. Also, I'm a huge nut fan, especially when it comes to oatmeal cookies... so I only added 1/2 cup of raisins (rather than 1 cup) and 1/2 cup of pecans. My problem with this recipe wasn't the flavor but the consistency. It was a very dry batter that needed to be pressed into balls in order to stay together and the cookies never flattened out during baking either, which meant either flattening them or adding an extra 5 minutes to the bake-time.
The flavor was at least a 4 1/2 stars but it wasn't so great that I felt it was worth the extra trouble of trying to keep them together on the sheet or the extra bake time, sorry.
