"I made the recipe, left out the nuts and baked 8 min at 400. They burned. Turned it down to 350 and they were okay. Who bakes cookies at 400????"

"Excellent. Used golden raisins. Will dice the apple more finely next time as larger thin slices made the dough hard to handle. Did not glaze these, and they didn't need it as they were plenty sweet already."

"I made them just like the recipe except for the raisins. The first dozen turned out ok, but the next dozen spreadout way too much. The next time I think I will add oats and use part wheat flour. I also did not like the cloves in the cookies."

"Very good! Just made some, with the alterations of whole wheat flour, pecans instead of walnuts, and added some oats (maybe about 2/3 c.) as well. Very hardy little cookies!"

"We really like these. I forgot the nuts, but they were still good. I substitute sprouted wheat flour, and it worked perfectly!"
