  3. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool on wire racks.

This is the same recipe that I have used for years, but I couldn't figure out how to make the raisins softer without boiling them. Thanks to this recipe, I soaked them. The only thing it didn't mention was how long to soak them. I gave it a good guess. I soaked them in warm water for about 45 min. they were the perfect consistency. Not to hard and not to mushy.

These were great. But I turned mine into Rum Raisin cookies. I put the two cups of raisins in a saucepan with one cup water and a half cup of Captain Morgan's spiced rum. I brought it to a hard boil, and then turned down the heat and simmered it until all the fluid was absorbed. It took about thirty minutes. After the cookies were baked and cooled, I drizzled a glaze over them that was just powdered sugar and Captain Morgan. Everybody says they're one of the best cookies I've made. And I've made a lot of cookies.

fabulous cookies!!! I added 1 t. cinnamon because raisins ans cinnamon just go together. I wonder how they'd be with ricotta substituting for the shortening?
