Made these for a cookie exchange and Christmas gifts last year, this year everyone asked me to make them again. Old fashioned and favorful.
kids didn't like them
I made bars and a few cookies. I substituted 1/2 cup of applesauce for 1/2 cup of butter. Tasted delicious.
I just made these for the first time, and I will be making them frequently...excellent recipe, my husband has been eating them all morning. I substituted nutmeg as I was out of ground cloves, they are still delicious. They do taste better on day 2. Thanks for sharing.
this is fantastic! Because I have small children I simply substitute walnut paste for the nuts, and I run the raisins thru my food processor before making. The best recipe I've found for hermits to date!!!
These are great tasting. I had to bake it a bit longer than what the recipe called for. I have never made hermits before, but always enjoyed them from a grocery store that went out of business quite a few years ago. So I want to say thank you for a great recipe that is comparable to the ones I use to buy,
Just what I was looking for! Made the bar version and it filled my huge cookie sheet. Only change I made was substituting 1/2 c brown sugar for a 1/2 c of sugar. Omitted walnits. Smelled great while cooking and tasted great!
This is a remarkable cookie! My grandmother used to bake these cookies and I remember fighting with my grandfather for the last one! My grandparents have since passed and I could not find the recipe. Now I have it again! Some of my best childhood memories are baking with my grandmother and now I can share some of that with my children! Thank you so much for posting this recipe! Happy Holidays!
