How to Make Rum Raisin Oatmeal Cookies


  1. in a small sauce pan, beat raisins and rum to a boil over medium high heat, cover and remove from heat.

  4. in a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until uniform.

  7. drop by tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes (the cookies may appear darker in color from the molasses, this does not necessarily mean that they have browned).
