I had never really been fond of raisins until I found this recipe in the newspaper back in the 70's...it surprised me at how good they were in this cookie and this recipe has since become a favorite in my family. In fact, my dear mother, who is now deceased LOVED this recipe, and made them often. When I make these I always think of her... :)
