    I love the combination of raisins and walnuts in a delicious oat biscuit. Remember to soften the butter!

    NOt the prettest cookie, but a big hit in my house. My kids can't get enough of these and they don't normally like oatmeal cookies. I used a subsitute buttermilk suggestion (1tbsp lemon juice and enough milk to make a full cup with both) and used baking powder instead of baking soda. I also turned the heat down to 350 and cooked a little longer. One last thing... there's no way anyone is going to get 72 cookies out of this! I got a little more then 36 using a teaspoon.  -  26 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for a chewy cookie, that is very moist inside. These are very cake-like and dry. The batter tastes better than the cooked product.  -  07 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe makes a very tasty cookie and is easy to double (which you will need to do if you want 72 cookies, I doubled it and almost got 6 dozen). I made a double batch and left the walnuts out of half and in that half, I added an extra 3/4 cup of raisins. Very moist and delicious!!  -  06 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
