Original recipe makes 4 dozen Change Servings


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the raisins and the water. Cook over medium heat until just boiling, then remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the melted margarine, sugar, and eggs. Stir in the vanilla, raisins, and the raisin water. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves; stir into the egg mixture. Then stir in the oatmeal. If the batter seems too runny, let it sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto an unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven.

Yum! These are nice and spicy. I made BIG cookies: about 20 instead of 48. I baked them for 13 minutes, and they turned out good. However, I think if I do this again, I'll turn the temp down to 375 and bake for 14-15 minutes. Emtmom, my husband thanks you!

These cookies are, indeed, soft and chewy. The raisins were nice and tender. The cookies were bland, though. I added salt and pecans, which made them much better. Next time, I would use brown sugar instead of white, and possibly even incorporate molasses somehow for a richer flavor.

Stuck to all 3 types of cookie sheets I own and were "cakey". Definately not what I was expecting.

This recipe was bland and they were so soft they all ran together on the cookiesheet even after I waited more than the five minutes and added more flour. I was really dissappointed at how they turned out. Even my 3 year old said he wouldn't eat them and he eats anything sweet.

All I can say is WOW! I really enjoyed the taste of these cookies! I loved the cloves in there and how the raisins were so plump! I did switch out half the sugar for brown sugar and in the future I will also bring down the temp to 375. Thanks for such a tasty recipe!

My family and I were very disappoiinted with these cookies. They were soft, cake like, sticky and broke apart easily. Not enough oatmeal and raisins for the amount of cookies.

IGNORE ALL THE OTHER REVIEWS!!! these are the best cookies me and my family have ever tasted!!! I was hesitant making these because of the other reviews but I decided to go for it and it was way worth it! I didn't change the recipe at all and it was fabulous. the only thing i would recomend is to put the cookies in the oven for 5 min. to start then add on by 1 minute because they burn fast. Just when they become slightly brown on top they are just right. Also, I didn't grease the pan with spray, I took soft butter on a papertowl and rubbed it on the pan! BEST COOKIES EVER!!!!! THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!!
