Like cakes and cup cakes I don`t bake much cookies..It`s just because of butter quantity..Yeah!! The butter amount makes me shiver to try cookies recipes..In fact my kids not a great lovers of cookies.Recently realized that I did n`t have baked any cookies these days..So, last few weeks back while baking a chocolate cake, thought to bake some cookies using black raisins..So,this is the result of my work finally..These cookies are rich in flavor,with real butter and are full of sweet taste raisins..Don`t over bake these,other wise becomes so hard.Addition of milk is important to get a right dough consistency in this recipe..So,very carefully add milk for perfect cookie dough..Before baking you can keep the tray,in fridge for 10-15 minutes and then bake..This step helps to retain the shape of the cookie instead of crackling..Instead of store bought goodies this type of home mades are much better for kids.So,try these soon and enjoy with your family..
