my daughter has allergies to eggs and nuts. this was still a very good cookie even when I omited the nuts. - 26 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made a variation of this over the holidays- basically I omitted the raisins because I forgot them on my shopping list. They came out wonderfully anyway. To add a touch more sweetness, without overdoing it, I put a simple sugar glaze on the top of each cookie. They came out quite nicely. - 01 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
