This recipe was given to my mother in the early 1960s by an elderly next door lady. These raisin cookies are the best I have ever had...I am not a milk drinker these days but when I think of having one of these, milk sounds really good! My husband and I made a huge batch of these for some airman on Spangdahlem Air Force Base..the Big 22. They loved us after those cookies! Hope you enjoy these too!
