    These cookies have great flavor! If I make these again, I would leave out the raisins and substitute the pecans with almonds.

    I don't use the raisins or the coconut because they aren't popular ingredients, BUT during Christmas i had to make more than 3 batches just so i could have enough to feed people at each party.
