    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Adapted from the classic "Back vergnuegen wie noch nie, " which I have translated into English from the German. Prep time includes a 30 minute soak for the raisins. Cook time is per batch. Look for approx American cup measurements at the bottom.

      Very tasty cookies! I used 1/4 tsp each of the cardamom and cloves, and used whiskey (Jack Daniels) since I was out of brandy. Definitely, highly recommended!
