A good alternative to raisins are raisined cranberries. I'm not a big fan of raisins so the dried cranberries are extra good to me.

I just found the receipt for the Walnut halves..$5.99 pound. Pecans usually run about the same at retail stores. Sometimes $6.99 depending on location etc. Pieces can sometimes run slightly less per pound.

I love pecans I buy them shelled in bulk in Texas as they are cheaper there.I buy about 10 pounds.I hate to pay for those itty bitty packages of them in the stores a total rip off.

This is my favorite oatmeal cookie. They have just a little crunch around the edges but are still chewy in the middle. Mmmmmmmmmm! No raisins though as they gross me out in cookies. LOL.
