I'm a novice to baking (got laid off, got bored one day ....) so this recipe appealed to me because it seemed easy enough that I could handle it and the spices suggested they would be tasty. I was right. I followed the recipe as written -- no alterations or substitutions -- and it was super easy to put together. I used a melon baller to drop the cookies on the sheets and the cookies came out in a decent shape and size. Most importantly, though, they were super delicious. The spices are rich and warm and I have to believe the raisins are chewy, plump and juicy due to the soaking. The cookies turned out slightly crisp on the outside and wonderfully chewy on the inside. It's what my wife called "perfect" and I'd have to agree. I think these are going to appear on our Holiday cookie plates for neighbors and friends this year.
