A different spin on the usual chocolate chip raisin cookies!
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup chocolate covered raisins (such as Glosette raisins)
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder. Then layer each item in the jar in the order listed above (starting with white sugar and finishing with the flour mixture). Press each layer down firmly before adding the next, or you won’t have enough room for all of the flour! Seal with a lid.
1/2 cup room temperature butter/margarine
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375F. Empty chocolate covered raisin cookie mix into a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine all ingredients. Add 1/2 cup room-temperature butter or margarine (how to soften butter in the microwave without melting it). Add egg and vanilla, mixing well. Knead with hands to ensure it is mixed well then roll into one-inch balls. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and place balls 2 inches apart to allow for spreading. Bake in preheated oven for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to cooling rack. Serve! Yield: About 30 cookies
