About this recipe: With a little experimenting, I came up with these chewy, spicy oatmeal raisin cookies. They make your kitchen smell wonderful while they are baking. They almost remind me of Christmas because the spices smell so good.

Used different ingredients. i used mixed spice instead of cloves, used granulated instead of caster sugar. Didn't add the salt, and used margarine not butter. - 17 Feb 2010
Out-blooming-standing!!!! Light, chewy, slightly sticky... I know professionals that can’t make cookies this good!!! Agreed, you need to make sure they’re well separated on the tray. Also, if using a fan assisted oven, 10 min is more then enough to start browning the edges All in all, fantastic, this recipe is getting printed and kept in the folder - 01 May 2011
Something else. I addded slightly less sugar, and used a combination of castor, light brown and dark brown sugar, which added a caramely flavour, ALSO, I used wholemeal flour=v.nice, and Lots more spices, used lots of cloves, cinnamon, mace, nutmeg, LOVELY - 16 Jun 2011
