I scaled down the recipe to only make a dozen and half, but recipe does not inform you to scale down amount of the "raisin juice reserve." No matter how much you make, it ask for 1/2 cup reserve. I did not catch this and had a liquid mess of shorting and sugar. I ended up doubling the other ingrediants and now have 3 dozens of cookies that leave a funny taste in my mouth. my mother however said they were ok. go figure. wont be making again.

I didnt read the directions completely the first time I made them and I used self-rising flour instead of all-purpose. I brought them to work and everyone LOVED them. The second time I made them for a bake sale and used self-rising instead... they didnt sell because they were awful. Flat and hard as a brick... Self-rising flour made all the difference.
