Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I was especially intrigued by this recipe when I saw it calls for raisin juice! Turns out, I do believe that it's that juice that helps make these cookies so uniquely good. I have a friend who LOVES oatmeal cookies and this recipe passed his taste-test with flying colors!

Directions Step-By-Step

Place raisins in saucepan; barely cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid.
