"Made these this evening. Used half butter and half shortening and omitted the walnuts. Agree with other reviewers, you don't need the whole cup of white sugar!"

"I just made these and they were delicious! I didn't have any shortening, so used butter instead. I also omitted the walnuts and used 1 cup of raisins. Very good! Highly recommend this recipe! Cookies were soft and chewy! Yummmmm!"
