Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies

Raisin & Milk Chocolate Chip cookies


I may have lost you at raisins, I’m well aware. My family felt like I pulled a fast one on them, and I quote: “It’s like mixing M&M’s and Skittles together. You’re just not supposed to do that.” Well, of course! M&M’s and Skittles most certainly do not go together. I contest; however, that raisins and chocolate complement one another. Raisinets, anyone? Decide for yourself. As an aside, it’s interesting how despite their grumblings, the cookies have steadily disappeared and not by my hand alone.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder; set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Add the flour mixture until just blended. Stir in the raisins and chocolate chips. Do not over mix. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Allow to sit for a minute on the baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
