New This Month

Submitted by Carol Osgood of Littleton, Colorado. As their name implies, these cookies are very large, so place six to eight cookies per sheet.

    I just finished makeing these cookies and they are out of this world. I'm giving them as a gift to our Pastor and his family for their 3rd anniversary with our church. I would recommend everyone try this one out.

    If you don't like the walnuts, just leave them out - no need to adjust the recipe.

    Does anyone have a suggestion to eliminate the walnuts? What would you add in place or add more of? I was thinking maybe raisins and more oats?

    QUESTION - What can I use instead of molasses? Would honey work?

    Sure, you can substitute quick cooking oats. Sometimes it will change the outcome slightly but not enough to ruin a recipe.

    Can you substitute quick oats for the old fashion oats?

    Used five ounces butter instead of vegetable shortening, used a generous cup of oats since that was all I had and, since I don't care for raisins, used half a cup each of candied ginger and dried cranberries. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Made 21 very nice cookies of a pretty good size; I would definitely make them again.

    These are really good cookies. I omit the raisins just because I don't care for them in cookies.
