“Don't let the lack of stars fool you! I accidentally forgot to add a cup of white sugar but the recipe has now been corrected. So sorry!! These cookies are great for shipping. They stay soft and they taste great! I sent them to my nephew in Iraq and he and his buddies devoured them in a sitting. You can substitute chocolate chips or dried cranberries and vanilla chips for the raisins to bring variety.”
