Gave these a bit more body by using just 1 cup regular flour, then 1/4 cup whole wheat flour & 1/4 cup oats. I also cut the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and used only 1/4 cup butter--oh, and doubled the allspice. I also baked them 14 minutes. They are crispy on the outside and tender and flavorful inside.
Good - not amazing.
I've never met a cookie I didn't like. These were great. Soft and a little spicy. My husband, who is not a dried fruit fan, loved them. Get creative with the fruit.
