I'm changing my rating to a 2 star. I hadn't made these cookies in a while, and I forgot about my notes in my first review below. I didn't add the extra flour and baking powder this last time and this cookies ran like crazy! I now understand why some where so disappointed. The extra flour REALLY makes the difference. Without this alteration, the original recipe is not good.
Hope this helps!
In an attempt to make "perfect" cookies the first try, I read many of the reviews here. Guess what! It worked! These cookies are fantastic. I did soak the raisins by putting them in a colander, placing the colander in a saucepan and running hot tap water over them enough to cover them. I let them soak while preparing the dough. Another concern expressed in other reviews was that these cookies came out flat and ran into each other. To try and avoid this happening, I used 1/4 cup more flour and added 1/2 tsp. baking powder. These did not run at all, and are slightly poofy.
