Mom’s Soft Raisin Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min./batch
These are absolutely the best cookies I have ever tasted! Followed the recipe to a T except used half cranberries and half raisins and slivered almonds. Huge recipe we had cookies for days LOL it's definitely on my list to keep forever
Made wayyyy tooo many cookies then I wanted and they tasted like dry cat litter!!!!
These cookies are the Bomb!!! So tasty and 3 days later they are still super soft! I always cut my cookie time by a few minutes. I will definitely make these cookies again. Mmmmm??
Made half the recipe with some modification and it still turned out okay: substituted 1/2 cup of unflavored vegan protein powder for 1/2 cup of the flour; substituted truvia brown sugar blend (half) for sugar ; used coconut oil instead of shortening; added cranberries
I've made these EXACTLY as the recipe herein calls for, because they're delicious RAISIN cookies.. and no one cares about what MamMaw stockpiled into a different recipe, which makes them a different cookie all together. Make this recipe - they're perfect just as planned. Honestly. Just follow the directions. ;)
These raisin cookies are the best! My household ate them up! I did change the recipe a tiny bit. I only had a cup and a half of sugar so I put in one quarter cup packed light brown sugar. They turned out great. I love these cookies!! Good job!
A personal favorite! This brought me back to my Mamaw's house and helping her make these from time to time. I have also taken this same recipe and used only 1/2 C. raisins, substituting 1/2 C. semisweet chocolate chips with 1 C. old fashioned oats, and walnuts for pecans and then the recipe tastes just like Mamaw's Chocolate Chip Raisin Oatmeal Cookies! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe - she would explain her recipes by saying it is some of this, a little of that, etc. It has been hard to match her recipes, but this is really very, very close to two of my favorite cookie recipes she made.
I made these years ago for my kids. We called them Rocks then because of they are left out, they become hard as rocks. The only difference is we use butter because we don't keep much shortening in the house. I'm fact, we substitute unsalted butter for almost everything.
These are wonderful cookies! For a change every now and then, finely grate the zest of an orange and rub it into the sugar between your thumb and finger before beginning. At Christmas I soak the raisins in spiced rum. Freshly grated nutmeg makes a huge difference.
Have made this recipe for years,got it from my mom, my husbands favourite. Moms were called Jumbo Raison Cookies, ingredients the same as above but some of her amounts are different. They are both excellent recipes. Definitely not a bland recipe. Nummy!
