  1. In a small saucepan, combine the raisins and the water. Cook over medium heat until just boiling, then remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the melted margarine, sugar, and eggs. Stir in the vanilla, raisins, and the raisin water. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves; stir into the egg mixture. Then stir in the oatmeal. If the batter seems too runny, let it sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto an unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven.

Yum! These are nice and spicy. I made BIG cookies: about 20 instead of 48. I baked them for 13 minutes, and they turned out good. However, I think if I do this again, I'll turn the temp down to 375 and bake for 14-15 minutes. Emtmom, my husband thanks you!


These cookies are, indeed, soft and chewy. The raisins were nice and tender. The cookies were bland, though. I added salt and pecans, which made them much better. Next time, I would use brown sugar instead of white, and possibly even incorporate molasses somehow for a richer flavor.


Stuck to all 3 types of cookie sheets I own and were "cakey". Definately not what I was expecting.
