These cookies are a soft, chewey delicacy. Their very mild sweetness comes mostly from the plumped raisins and a wee bit of honey. Those of you who prefer your cookies SWEET will definitely want to add brown sugar, more honey, or whatever your favorite sweetener is. Soaking the raisins overnight in water allows them to release some of their sugars and plump up to twice their normal size.
