Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Water (1 cup)
into a small pot and bring to a boil. Add the
Raisins (1 cup)
and boil for 8 to 10 minutes. You want about 3 tablespoon of the water remaining. Set it aside and let it cool completely.
In a mixing bowl, add
Brown Sugar (1 cup)
Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup)
. Using a spatula, cream them together.
In a separate bowl, add
All-Purpose Flour (1 3/4 cups)
Salt (1/2 tsp)
Ground Cloves (1/4 tsp)
Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp)
Ground Allspice (1/2 tsp)
Baking Soda (1/2 tsp)
Baking Powder (1/2 tsp)
. Whisk until everything is well combined.
Add a little bit of the flour mixture to the sugar mixture followed by a few of the undrained raisins. Mix until combined.
Do this about 5 or 6 times until you have a smooth cookie dough.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper or spray with baking spray. Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop up a couple of tablespoons of the dough and place it on the cookie tray. You want about 3 inches between the cookies.
Place the cookies into a 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the cookies and allow them to cool completely.
Serve and enjoy your cookies!
