"These were really good and easy to make too. They are also very forgiving -- we didn't have quite enough oats so used extra flour to equal the amount needed and they still worked out great! Moist and spicy!"

We enjoyed these cookies and the boiling of the raisins is a good idea because it plumps them up making them soft. For the second batch I flattened the raw cookie balls a bit with a floured fork because the first batch came out too high. They have a cake-like consistency as opposed to crispy-soft which is how we like them and felt like they needed vanilla extract or something to balance them out. Thank you, ellie, for sharing. Made it "For your Consideration" tag game and "Billboard" tag game.
