"This has become our favorite cookie ever since I found the recipe. I have shared it with so many people and everyone loves them! My husband even prefers them to regular chocolate chip cookies."

"I've made them twice and they do disappear fast! They are a little different from the regular chocolate chip and my husband does not like raisins but he likes these."
