I have no idea why there are so few reviews for this recipe. It's phenomenal!! Hearty, homey and wholesome, full of flavor. Equally at home with a tall, cold glass of milk or a steaming mug of latte. I made two minor alterations. The 2 tsp of salt seemed too high to me, so I cut back to 1-1/2 tsp and the result seemed just right to my palate. I discovered I only had 1 cup of raisins, so I filled in with a cup mixed of craisins and cut-up prunes. I did allow them to cool before mixing them in, as directed, and I did chill overnight. However, the second time I made them, I didn't chill, and there was no discernible difference in the end product. They don't spread on the sheet, so what you see going into the oven is pretty much what you get coming out. Mine, therefore, were much puffier than those pictured. Lovely, chewy texture which equals a good keeper. The spice makes them irresistible. 10 minutes was perfect timing. The recipe makes a lot, so perfect for a crowd, one you'll be proud to serve. A fabulous heritage cookie jar filler.
