Rose Mary's notes for this recipe:
Don't know how this cookie got it's name but it certainly is a very good cookie. I first made this cookie about 15 years ago and fell in love with the taste & texture. I got the recipe from a coworker, and have used it ever since. I also made these cookies for a Church Bake sale, & ran out, so every one loved the moist & chewy goodness. I just bet you will too. In other parts of the country is has many other names, but no matter what you call them, you are sure to be pleased with the taste.I only bake with butter, I feel it enhances the flavor of the baked good.

NOTE: I USUALLY ADD MORE RAISINS & NUTS THAN WHAT IS CALLED FOR IN RECIPE. But that is a matter of preference. YOU CAN ALSO CUT THIS RECIPE IN HALF. Also note because We prefer a much softer & chewy cookie, I only bake them for 9 minutes.
