In Search Of: the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Part 14: Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies

I am not sure where I found this recipe. I tried finding it online, with no luck. It might be from the French Metro newspaper, which means it would have had salt in the original version, or maybe it’s a recipe from an old magazine.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened (the recipe called for salted butter – so maybe there was no added salt in the original – but we used semi-salted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups of raisins (we used 1 cup)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (we used 1 cup)

1. Preheat oven to 300F. (I misread and preheated to 350F.)

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour and baking powder.

3. In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

4. Add flour mixture to wet ingredient. Add raisins and chocolate chips.

5. Drop spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake 22-24 min (at 350F they only needed about 12 to 15 min to bake).

Verdict: We made 6 dozen cookies.

They were very good. I will be keeping this recipe.

I don’t understand why the recipe would call for two cups each of raisins and chocolate chips, because that would have been too much for the batter. One cup each was perfect.
