Alison is right--these cookies are wonderfully soft, not overly-sweet and just delicious. Thanks for sharing a passed-down family recipe. I did use 1/2 C butter and 1/2 C Crisco (personal cookie preference) and did not grease the sheets. Had no trouble removing the cookies.
Thanks Alison, this recipe is as close as I have found to how my mom 7 grama made raisin cookies (missed getting this recipe from them) They are smooth and yummy - I will add a few more raisins next time because I love them!
