Raisins in Cookies

Some people like raisins in their cookies. Those people can click onto the next blog on their list right now.

Some people complain when their wives or mothers put raisins in the cookies. Big old lumpy chewy things. But sometimes that mother wants to put raisins in the cookies. Oh, y'know, because maybe she likes the raisins. Or she wants to sneak some extra nutrition into the cookies. Or other equally evil subterfuges.

When you're mixing together the cookie dough, save out about 1/4 or 1/2 cup of the flour. Put the raisins into your food processor. Sprinkle that reserved flour on top of the raisins in the food processor. Turn on the machine, and let it grind up your raisins into little pieces. (The more you have to hide them, the smaller you chop them.) Into the batter they go. If you ground them small enough, none of your raisin-haters will even notice ... except for how sweet and tasty the cookies are. "These are better than usual, Mom!" "Yes, dear, they are, aren't they?"


  1. Ew. See, I think I would not like ground up raisins in my cookies. I don't like it when foods taste like one thing but look like another (so a plain cookie tasting like a raisin cookie). But I DO like (chunky) raising cookies, so I guess it's a moot point...

  2. See, I don't actually like raisins in my cookies, but the ground up ones sound good to me, might have to try this.
