These were very interesting when I saw the recipe on food.com so I decided to try them out. They taste really good! I added some cinnamon to the dry ingredients and used margarine.
I ended up using a bit of liquid to bring it all together, probably because I was too impatient to cut in the margarine properly. Either way, they are tasty and the filling is fun and easy. It really is like a cookie bar (maybe because of the extra liquid I used) and I really liked them. Never thought to make a raisin filling, I did use brown sugar there as well. If you like oatmeal raisin cookies I highly recommend, and they would be great with some baking spice.
