    Used different ingredients. I didn't have any cloves so I used 1 tsp of mixed spices instead  -  06 Oct 2010


    I used nuts instead of raisins and 130g sugar. However I would suggest the first time you make this, just make half quantities, in case you or your family don't like it, otherwise you might end up with lots of unwanted cookies!  -  07 Aug 2016
