MMhhh! Cookies with raisins and rum! I%u2019ve used real rum instead of water and rum aroma. They are really delicious. My children are crazy for them. I would like to keep some for Christmas, so I%u2019ll have to hide them. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Prepared for %u201CLet's P-A-R-T-Y! ~2010%u201D cooking game.
