27 Aug Shirini Keshmeshi – Persian Raisin Cookies
I love chocolate and chocolate chip cookies. Who doesn’t!?
Now imagine replacing those delicious chocolate chips with raisins! I know what you are thinking … but, I promise these raisin cookies are better than any chocolate chip cookie you will ever have. These cookies are not only delicious, but also so simple to make.
Mama B makes these every time we have guests coming over. Our American guests instantly fall in love with these scrumptious cookies.
And, of course, you must serve these cookies with a fantastic cup of black tea. My favorite is the Cardamom Tea by Ahmad Tea.
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1⁄2 cups raisins
