As written this is kind of bland cookie. I omitted the raisins and added 1/8 tsp each ground cloves nutmeg and ginger. The flavor is great with those additions and the toasted coconut is wonderful. The dough is more of a thick batter that gets dropped on the baking sheet so I did chill the dough for 30 minutes prior to baking. These are a nice cakey cookie. I took these to a small gathering and they got very good reviews though my husband did suggest that they would be better with the addition of butterscotch chips. I lined the baking pan with non-stick pan lining paper and allowed to cool on a metal rack. Read More

This cookie is quick to make and includes items one usually has on hand. Great for those watching their oil/butter intake. They tasted ok but this would not be a recipe I would search out to make again. I prefer a chewier texture and these definitely need more taste. There wasn't any real flavor that stuck out. I know what was in them but seems like there was not enough to make any of the flavors shine through. Maybe would be better tasting with a few adjustments. Read More

I liked these bc of the moisture to them. They weren't the most flavorful yes kinda bland but I liked them still. Maybe I would add more coconut or chocolate chips next time. Read More

Added walnuts because I I only had smooth peanut butter extra half cup flour to thicken 1/2 more cinnamon and 1/2 tsp vanilla and they tasted great. Did not look very cookie shaped otherwise I would have given 5 stars. Read More
