Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These moist and delicious cookies are from an old family recipe (from Martha Carnell, cousin of Dorothy Hauptli) that Ive used many times. Boiling the raisins is the key to a nice, moist cookie. The cookies have been made countless times and are always well received.
