    Great recipe although I used pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and doubled the amount. Make sure you use a brand new unopened jar of the spice. After the holidays you can use it up in things like oatmeal or coffee. Always use a fresh jar for baking :-)

    These cookies were wonderful! They were thick, and soft, and chewy, and delightful in flavor. I made mine with a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. I stored them in a freezer bag with a couple of slices of bread to keep the cookies moist and they were still good a week later, just as the recipe says they will be.

    I made these for my husband, who has the lap band. I used 1/4c stevia instead of sugar and 3/4c Ideal brown sugar (substitutes seem sweeter to me so I reduce the amounts) 2tbls organic sugar (to get that chemical reaction)... These cookies were delicious. I was going to give them away for xmas, but my family kept eating them so I had to make more.

    I tried these cookies yesterday and I substituted raisins for dried cranberries and I have to say they were absolutely delicious. They reminded me of the delicious gourmet oatmeal cranberry and white chocolate chunk cookies we recently ordered from These are definitely a close second.

    For all those in opposition to crisco and butter alternatives...some people have to use alternatives to butter due to milk allergies! my breastfed infant has a milk allergy so I've had to find substitutions to milk products for the time being. I'm pretty sure these cookies will still be edible and won't kill least i hope. :)
