Rum raisin cookie recipe

This rum raisin cookie recipe makes a lot of cookies, so it's great for bake sales, parties, to bring to work or church potlucks, and for Christmas cookie exchanges. Mark my word, everybody loves these cookies, so you don't need to halve the recipe. They will disappear before your eyes.

Rum raisin cookie recipe
Makes about 6 to 7 dozen small cookies
1 1/2 cups raisins
1/2 cup dark rum
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour

Combine raisins and rum and microwave for 30-60 seconds to plump up raisins. Preheat oven to 400 F. while you cream together butter and sugar. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Add flour and raisins and mix thoroughly. Drop cookies onto Silpat, or greased and floured cookie sheet. Bake for about 7 minutes.
