Sam's Brown Sugar and Raisin Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Akikobay

This recipe came from a friend who loves to bake and does it very well. I like these cookies because they are soft and chewy, but still a little bit substantial. The combination of brown sugar, butter, and raisins is so comforting, these cookies will disappear before they cool!

These cookies have such a wonderful flavor of butter, brown sugar and raisins! Even the ones that I overcooked were delicious "dunkers".
