  • 3/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup coconut or spiced rum
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup of butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

In a small bowl, combine raisins and rum. Marinate for at least an hour, overnight if possible.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla extract. In another bowl, combine flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and oats. Mix in to the butter mixture. Dough will be stiff. Stir in raisin and rum mixture, as well as the pecans.

Drop by a teaspoon onto a cookie sheet, leaving room for cookies to spread out.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, until edges of cookies are golden. Remove from oven, and leave to cook on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling down.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies
