You get the flavours of the raisins and the pecans coming through and are perfect with a cup of tea or glass of cold milk.

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can swap the raisins for other dried fruit, such as cranberries, perhaps dried apricots or cherries, and also, for the nuts, you could use walnuts, macadamias... really, the sky's the limit! All you need to do is make sure you keep to the quantity ratios if you're swapping ingredients and you'll be fine!

They also make lovely gifts, especially over the holiday season.

    These are absolutely delicious. I substituted shortening for the butter because I have a dairy allergy. They turned out chewy on the inside and a bit crisp on the outside, with a toffee flavor to them. Such a perfect combination with the raisins and pecans. Thank you for the wonderful recipe, I will certainly be saving this one.

    1. Patti, I always use a cookie scoop. It makes uniformly sized balls of dough. The scoop can be found at most retailers (Target, Walmart, Michaels, etc). You can also just use a regular spoon (like what you stir your coffee with). Just scoop out a rounded spoon of dough and use another same size spoon to easily drop on baking pan.

  2. I made these today and substituted craisins because I was out of raisins. Delicious! The red craisins make them look more festive on the holiday cookie trays. Great recipe!!
