Chocolate Raisin Cookies

I am not sure where I originally found this recipe.

  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (we didn’t use as we use salted butter)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup raisins (this amount is definitely too much for the batter. We used closer to 3/4 cups)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (we again used closer to 3/4 cup)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a double boiler over hot but not boiling water melt the unsweetened chocolate. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together brown sugar, sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla. Add melted chocolate.
  5. Add the flour mixture. Add the raisins and chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
  6. Drop by tablespoons onto baking sheets.  Bake for 20-22 minutes.

Chocolate Rasin Cookies

Verdict: I found these cookies to be a little dry; I am thinking that the last 1/4 cup of flour may not have been needed. I also, personally, was not a fan of the chocolate and raisin taste together in this cookie, which is odd because I love chocolate covered raisins.
