I made these for my boyfriend and we both loved the result! My oven runs hot, so I baked my batches for 9 and 8 minutes (first and second batch respectively). The first batch is still nice and chewy (not hard, except for the bottom), and the second batch is softer. Both batches have a nice light brown underside, which is how I determined if they were done. I varied the recipe slightly, omitting the raisins, switching pecans for walnuts, adding white chocolate chips and chunks, and using 1 1/2 c brown sugar and 1/2 c white sugar. I agree with other reviewers that this recipe is flexible; I'd like to try it with orange essence and dark chocolate, macadamia nuts and white chocolate, craisins and walnuts, and different spices. Of course it depends on cookie size, but I ended up with 48 cookies, not 36 like the recipe estimates.
