1 teaspoon water
2 medium-sized eggs
2 1/2 cups sifted, all-purpose flour

Beat softened margarine, brown and white sugars, vanilla, water and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy and thoroughly blended.

Stir in raisins and chocolate pieces.

Using the teaspoon from measuring set, spoon dough by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets.

Allow 1-1 between cookies for spreading.
