Mmm, orange juice-soaked raisins and the dipping in melted white chocolate of these soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies separate these treats from the pack, in the most delicious way!
This is a Sunmaid Raisins recipe. I've been making it for years. I have found that adding 1/4c flour helps keep them from spreading out and getting too thin. - 17 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've made these for years, and yes, it is a Sun-Maid Raisin recipe that I pulled from an ad many years ago. I add a lot of orange zest! I also use a double boiler to melt the white chocolate after having inconsistent and often heart-breaking and frustrating results with melting the white chocolate in the microwave oven. With the double boiler, I can stir and monitor it more, and I leave the water simmering when I take the top pot off and dip the cookies. Then if the chocolate gets too stiff, I just put it back on the boiling water for a few seconds and stir. Be careful not to get ANY water or moisture in the chocolate!! It will SEIZE UP and be totally unusable. (Ask me how I know...) - 13 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I actually opted not to use the white chocolate on this one, and just went with the cookie on it's own. It turned out wonderfully, and was very easy to do! - 14 Oct 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
