Notes

These old-fashioned mildly sweet cookies are doted with walnuts and raisins. I like then soft right out of the oven and later they crisp up and are perfect for dunking. I have been making these cookies for years and they are always a huge hit with kids and adults like them as well. They are easy to make and I use parchment paper for easy clean up. Let me know if you like them!
