"Wonderful easy and delicious recipe! I substituted pecans for the raisins and they were a real hit at my office. I will definitely be making these again."

"This is a great 'any season' cookie recipe! Try a 'limited edition' cake mix- For instance 'Carmel Apple' cake mix with butterscotch chips. 'Key Lime Pie' or ''Red Velvet' with white chocolate chips. 'Carrot' with raisins and nuts. One of the best is 'Strawberry' with coconut and white chocolate chips-- Beautiful!!"
