Yum Yums

True to their name, these cookies are yummy! They spread out quite a bit while baking, so leave plenty of room between cookies on the cookie sheets.


1 cup water
2 cups raisins
1 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice


Place water and raisins in a saucepan. Boil until all water is gone. Watch carefully as the water will evaporate quickly and the raisins can stick to the bottom of the pan. Let cool completely. Cream together margarine, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Add raisins last. Mix well. Drop by heaping teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with a fork dipped in water. Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes.
