Recipe by Pardeemom
Shaped in a soft mound rather than a flattened cookie, this cookie not only has great flavor, but it's also wonderfully soft and tender. If your taste runs to melt-in-your-mouth crumbly - rather than chewy, crisp or crunchy - this one's for you.
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 6 tablespoons sour cream (or yogurt)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup raisins

- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup pecans, chopped (or walnuts)
