These are very interesting. They look very pale in person (not as brown as they look in the photos), even after baking the full 15 minutes. They are crispy on the edges and chewy in the center, but also very moist and a bit sticky. I made a few slight changes - doubled the salt, and used fat-free milk and regular not golden raisins (what I had). I ended up with 41 cookies, using my cookie scoop to dish them out. I was glad to try a different cookie than I usually make, since I've never cooked/baked much with raw sugar. Thanks for sharing!
