2 dozen (serving size: 1 cookie)

You can make these ahead of time and store them in an airtight container, but they're best served warm.

These cookies are delicious. After a few minutes while still warm they're chewy with yummy texture. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins and added 1 1/2 tsps cinnamon with the flour mixture. It would be a very good holiday cookie that way. The 12 minutes is right on! I agree that the cookies are very sweet so next time I might cut the sugar back a little. I doubled the recipe today and they're turning out great.

You might let them cook too long or made them too thin

I reduced the white sugar to 1/3 cup and added 1 tsp baking soda and these worked out great for me. I got a lot of compliments on them and will definitely be making them again. I forgot to toast the walnuts though, so I'm going to make sure to do that next time and I'm sure that will make them even better.

I tripled this recipe, baked it in a 13 x 9 inch pan at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, and cut them into 48 bars....really moist and chewy! I substitued half of the flour with whole wheat flour, half the raisins with dried cherries, and added 1 1/2 tsp baking soda to the flour mixture. Easy to make them this way, and I'll definitely made them again and again!!

Wonderful recipe! I made them as part of a gift basket for some friends and they were a big hit! I have omitted the raisins too and added a few dark chocolate chips. Delicious as well!

These cookies were excellent, they had a lovely nutty taste.  Next time I will double the recipe, as my family gobbled them up within a a few hours!

Pretty good

 This turned out pretty sweet not too sweet in my taste but sweet. Toasting the walnuts makes it very good and we used chocolate chips instead of raisins plus 1 T of baking soda. The only problem I have is they turned out sort of flat, not sure if that's the way we dropped in baking sheet or not enough dough. They will probably turn out better if you double the recipe.

It turned out very sweet, I should have read the reviews earlier and reduce the amount of sugar by half. Also, the 1.5t cinnamon and 1t baking soda as others recommended would have further improved the result. I will give it another try with these changes, but I think there are better CL cookie recipes

Cut granulated sugar to 1/3 cup but there was not enough liquid in this recipe, and the cookies were overcooked at 12 min's on metal sheet pans. Recipe needs some reworking although taste was not bad.
