Grandma said to add the sugars at this time until it becomes fluffy about 3 minutes and I still follow her instructions to the tee. Then add 1 egg at a time.

Form the dough into 32 or so 1 inch balls, placing each ball onto two or four parchment paper covered, large cookie sheet. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. I turn my sheets around in the oven for a more even cooking. Let them set for 15 to 20 minutes. before serving.

Note: Chocolate Chips can be added in place of the raisins, but I like to add them with the raisins sometimes. You can also add nuts. Just add 1 1/4 cups of nuts or Chocolate Chips with or in place of the Raisins.
