Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with reserved liquid. Stir in walnuts and raisins. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned.

Place confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl; add hot cream mixture and enough of the remaining cream to achieve spreading consistency. Frost cooled cookies.
