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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
