Spiced Rum & Raisin Cookies

 
Do you like cookies that are buttery, crisp edged and chewy in the middle"  Mmm . . .  they're the best!

 
I am a big fan of the flavours of rum and raisins together. Rum and Raisin ice cream has always been one of my favourites, right up there alongside of maple walnut and vanilla!

These cookies are absolutely gorgeous!  Crisp edged.  Chewy centred.  Buttery.  Nicely spiced.  And stogged full of lovely rum flavoured raisins.
 

They truly are delicious.  So delicious that despite my diabetes, I scarfed one down almost as soon as it came from the oven.  Naughty me.  I will be paying for that the rest of today  .  .  .
 

Spiced with ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ground coriander . . .  it went down so well with a nice glass of cold milk.  Oh boy . . .  these could be dangerous!  Do note, there are NO eggs in the recipe.  I have not left them out.  Adapted from a little cookbook by the people at Love Food, entitled . . . simply . . .  Cookie Jar.
