  5. Using a cookie scooper or a tablespoon, scoop a mound of the batter onto the prepared baking sheet and continue making mounds until you have 12 cookie mounds. These do not need to be perfect as they will spread and take their own unique form, so leave about 2 inches between each cookie.

Recipe Notes

If you are not a raisin person, try dried cranberries or cherries and feel free to switch up the nuts as well. Pecans would be a great alternative for crunch factor.
