These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are named for a family friend of Dorie Greenspan.  An unusual ingredient is raisins soaked in hot water, red wine, brandy, cognac, rum, or black tea.  I kept it simple and used hot water but I would like to try tea.  One of my favourite oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipes is from an old edition of The Joy of Cooking and contains orange peel.  I wonder what the raisins would taste like after a soaking in Constant Comment tea?


  1. These were good, weren't they? I think anything orange in these would be tasty!

  2. We enjoyed these plus love any cookie that includes chocolate.
