Makesabout 5 dozen
Experienced baker's only 2nd time making rolled/cut out cookies, just because I never like to wait on chilled dough....But lots of cookies bake up better from chilled so decided to make these and several other cookie doughs in advance for Christmas giveaways....These are really good and easy to make....I did use light brown sugar and also replaced the raisins with a purchased pre-mix of golden raisins, cranberries, and cherries. I also did an orange juice glaze rather than lemon as a personal preference.....They freeze well and will definitely be in my cookie rotation!
this cookie is wonderful. I added dried cranberries in place of the raisins , so instead of lemon in the glaze, I added orange zest-otherwise I made as written. Everyone loved them and I will definitely make these again.
I love this cookie. I like to use chopped dates, golden raisins and chopped nuts, roll into rolls like refrigerator cookies and slice when very cold, instead of rolling out. Every time I take these cookies somewhere, the recipe is requested.
Very good cookies. I will make again.
This cookie is wonderful, spicy, chewie and keeps well. At least it keeps a few hours until they are all gone. I sometimes substitute chopped dried apricots or dried cherries or cranberries for the raisins. I make several batches before Christmas. They are always a hit!
