Notes

 

 

  • Decorate "faces" by using melted cooled chocolate bits and whole raisins.
  • These are great any time of the year. Just change the icing and decorations for Christmas, Hanukah, or other holidays.

    My mother used to make these every Halloween.  They are the best cookies that I have ever eaten.   Even people who claim not to like raisen cookies love these!
