I have been searching all over for a raisin spice cookie just like my grandmas. She is gone and I have a feeling the recipe is one she stored in her head. This one very close in flavor, next time I would up the spices a bit I think. The texture isnt the same as grandma's. These were crunchy but very tasty. I didnt have any walnuts like grandma put in hers. Overall it is a really good recipe and I will make it again I think. Thanks.

These are pretty good cookies and easy to make .. I got 72 cookies, and baked for 8 minutes, because I like my cookies chewy .. thanks for posting!
