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?
