    keen5's Note:

    I got this recipe from an old Southern Living cookbook. I make these regularly, since we all love raisin cookies and this is a good recipe. Cook time is per pan. In answer to a reviewer, yes...You do add the rasins along with the water they were cooked in. As it cools, it thickens.

      Really good, just how I remembered them. Great with a glass of milk. My grand-daughter made these for a treat/learning to cook experience and she had a bit of trouble. As a first time cook, she didn't know what to do with the raisin water, and after I studied the recipe I found it doesn't say. My reasoning would be to add it with the raisins and that is what we did. Good thing we did, the dough would have been pretty stiff without it! Anyway, just one of those beginner things, but may-be the recipe should be edited for the water. Thanks for the good cookie treat, and it was so nice to have someone else make them!! BB
