WOW! My mom and I made this cookie tonight as we were looking for a raisin oatmeal cookie that wasn't so...bland. This recipe is FABULOUS!! Soaking the raisins makes them plump and soft (and not so raisin-like) and the cinnamon adds a great kick. We also added half a bag of Hershey's Cinnamon Chips to the mix and oh my goodness. You MUST try it. I think we have a new favorite cookie.:)
This cookie reminded me of some my mother made called Oatmeal Rocks. They stay in a mounded shape and don't get real brown. They are softer than the ones my mother made and I like a soft cookie. I would make them again!
My entire family loved these cookies. The only change I made was to omit the nuts. They are soft chewy and full of flavor due to the cloves. This will certainly be a favorite cookie for years to come. My father-in-law instantly requested the recipe when he bit into one. Thank you for sharing Martha.
Mine too came out as balls. I made the recipe exactly as written. They are not soft and chewy as I was hoping for more like soft a litttle fluffy and sort of dry (even though they were baked to just golden brown on the edges and bottom. To it's credit the plumpled raisins were much better than firm raisins. With all the thousands of cookie recipes out there I will try a different recipe next time I want cookies.
Ooooops! Threw out the raisin water while I was cleaning up but substituted cold hazelnut coffee for the liquid! Absolutely delicious cookies great recipe will make again very soon!! Thanks for sharing!
These are nice soft delicious cookies. If you're looking for a crispy cookie look elsewhere. This dough keeps well in the refrigerator. When I baked another try a few days later my cookies were much thicker.
