"The first time I made these sweet chewy cookies, I didn't tell my family they were low in fat," says Julie Hauser of Sheridan, California. "Their reaction when they found out? 'No way!'"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2009 Edited Feb. 10, 2009

I didn't bother processing the initial ingredients to get "finely chopped raisins" - seems to me the whole raisins are the best part of these kinds of cookies.  They were just fine this way.  On the whole, the cookies are a bit dense, and remain in the "drop" cookie shape - they don't spread like other cookies.  I used old fashioned oatmeal also (quick cook oatmeal is just old-fashioned that has been chopped up).  My husband thought they were great, especially since they're lo-cal and don't have cholesterol (he's watching his).  They were too sweet for me, with the 2 cups of sugar plus 1 T of molassas, but in general the flavor was nice.  I'll keep this recipe and cut some of the sugar next time.
