We would make this cookie because it was easy to make and we usually had all of the ingredients on hand.  We would alternate between this recipe, Peanut Butter Cookies, and chocolate chip cookies.  My sister would spend all day trying to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie, which is something she still tries to do to this day.  You can tell this Cinnamon Raisin Cookie recipe takes me down memory lane, and after you make it you will see why.
