    2 hours 20 minutes

    Oat biscuits don't normally appeal to me much but these ones with coffee liqueur soaked sultanas are great.

    Yum - maybe a little bit more liqueur needed.  -  17 May 2012


    This was one of the best oatmeal raisen cookies I have ever made. My entire family loved them, especially my grandson. They were already asking for me to make more before they finished what was in the cookie jar!  -  08 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I cut this in half. Probably not the best recipe to cut in half because the dough was really loose. I ended up adding almost another whole cup of oatmeal and another 1/2 cup of flour. As is, this is a nice basic oatmeal cookie. The Kahlua adds a nice flavor. I think that the walnuts and white chocolate chips should be a must for this cookie instead of being optional. That would have really taken your average oatmeal-raisin cookie and made it extraordinary. NOTE: If you are baking this at 350*, 11 minutes is about right for a soft cookie. This makes more of a cake-y cookie, not necessarily chewy. Half a batch made 31 medium sized cookies.  -  07 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
