What others are saying about this recipe

  1. Topping says:

    Good cookie! Half chewy, half cake-like. Just about right on the sweetness.
    Instead of raisins, we added a finely minced gala apple. It cooked just perfectly. Mounded the chilled dough into heavy teaspoons yet they still went pretty flat. We will definitely make these again.
