    These cookies were a huge hit with my daughter and my boyfriend. I used regular sugar in the raw and they loved the crunch. I added maybe a few extra teaspoons of rum, (Goslings) but these were very moist and not at all crumbly. I used butter. They do not have an overpowering taste of Rum, just right. Also I found these kept better in the fridge in the summer heat.

    I followed the recipe to the letter, using butter and adding 1/8 t. water when the dough came out very crumbly. It made 24 small cookies that barely spread at all and tasted like absolutely nothing. I'm so disappointed.

    Oh my, this is a great cookie. Used dark rum to soak and cook the raisins. Also used half dark raisins and half golden raisins. As the dough was rather stiff I opted to roll the cookies by hand instead of using a tablespoon. Probably made them just a little bit too big as I got 23 cookies and they needed 13 minutes to bake. But the result, wow! Soft and chewy. I have to restrain myself from eating too many in one go, they taste that good. Thanks for posting.
