    While I did make a couple of changes, I'm sure that as is, these cookies are wonderful. First, I changed the recipe to make 24 cookies. Then I added about 2 T of softened/melted peanut butter as the last ingredient while omitting the raisins. I thought the batter was to die for, but then I tried a cookie. It was fluffy and moist on the inside. Perfect in my book! They remind me of my childhood fav- no bake cookies. So I guess these are Bake, No-bake cookies.  -  16 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wow I love the cookies. They are better when you make them atleast a inch wide, because they are bigger. They don't cook as much and are doughier!  -  03 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious! I went with the chocolate chips. My husband said "the bites with lots lof chocolate chips are the best." I thought they were great because they left me delighted with the cookie I had, not needing more, but I wouldn't have complained if I had to eat more. They're fantastic!  -  14 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
