Cooked these in a convection oven. I did not like how they turned out. The cookies didn't spread out and take a cookie shape. They were just ugly blobs, that looked like raw cookie dough. I am a...

I love these cookies. I eat way more than I should. The problem is my family doesn't love them as much as me and I end up eating the majority. They are moist and yummy.

Very Yummy! I didn't have raisins on hand so I substituted dried cranberries. I think they were even better than they would have been with raisins!

My family-even the ones who don't normally choose raisins-loved them!

I had to make this for a class of fourteen kids, they loved it. It was amazing, although I took out the rasins because I don't like them.
