If you haven’t made these cookies, I just know you will bake them today!

There’s a reason for the semantics in the recipe title.  It says “delicious raisin” oatmeal cookies, not delicious oatmeal raisin cookies.

The raisins in this recipe have a taste you never knew raisins could have.  There is a super secret special technique for these cookies that I am going to share with you.

You’re welcome.

The thing about secrets

is that if we share them, they’re not secrets, are they?

But how could I live so long without knowing the secret to delicious raisins?

It’s so unfair that someone kept this a secret from me but told my daughter-in-law.  Now my son loves her more than he does me…

So I just feel that it is my mission to reveal this secret today for the younger world to know and not live to be a gramma before you taste these special cookies.

Back to semantics, in this case secret really means special technique that no one would guess could make such a difference.  It’s not secret in the way that you can never, ever cross-your-heart tell one soul about this.  Some secrets are important to know.  Others, not so much.

This is way more important than knowing that banging your head against the wall burns 150 calories an hour.  But please don’t bang your head against the wall just because you didn’t know this special secret until now.  Unless you need to burn the calories from eating all the cookies.  If you must, just bang softly, okay?

Okay, Easy Gourmets, let’s bake cookies.

Here is the Secret and the Special Technique that happens first thing when you make these cookies:

Break the eggs into a bowl, add the vanilla, and beat together till foamy.

And then?  Are you ready?

Add the raisins and soak the raisins in the raw eggs and vanilla for at least an hour.

I had never heard of this.  Never, ever.

Where have I been while girls everywhere were making delicious raisins and winning boys hearts away from their mamas?

Okay.  Put your apron back on.

Here’s the recipe.  Written on the beautiful Annie Recipe Album recipe page.
