I thought this was a slightly odd recipe but gave it a try because my hubba likes anything with a "rum raisin" combination. It's a very soft and moist cookie. I added vanilla and rum extract to give more flavour.


I added roughly another 2/3 - 3/4 cup flour. I soaked the raisins over night in 50 ml rum and and 25 ml rum extract. I used the left over liquid which wasnt much, as an extra flavoring. I did cook them at 375 and not 425. I made 3oz cookies, and they took about 20ish minutes. Cookies turned out husband likes them alot.

First - I used 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup craisins and 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips. I let the fruit soak overnight and saved the liquid which was a good idea b/c I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar (that someone else suggested). The reserve liquid was used to break up the brown sugar. I also cooked agreed with the idea of cooking it at 375 for about 10-12 minutes. My personal name for these cookies is rum-a-licious cookies :)
