Very moist cookie. Participants liked them a lot.
The cookies were very moist. I baked them the night before and they were a little sticky by morning. Next time I will cut the amount of oil in half.
With easy modifications this recipe can be made healthier. The sugar can be reduced to half (3/4 cup), 100% whole wheat flour can be used entirely (2 3/4 cups,)and unsweetened applesauce can be substituted for the oil. I add a third egg to increase the protein content and moisture and make 24 cookies instead of 48. The result is a lightly sweet, pleasant cake-like cookie that my clients have named "muffin tops." It would be helpful to have this modified version with the nutrition facts.

Needs tweeks

Pumpkin Spice is cheaper than all those individual ingredients, and <br/>2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour are way cheaper than adding whole wheat flour! Cut the sugar in half because the raisins are plenty sweet. One egg is good enough for me, and I used butter not oil (but only because I use butter for everything!). <br/>
