Spiced Chocolate chip cookies with raisins


In Norway it is tradition to bake at least 7 different cookies for Chritmas, depending on where you come from in Norway and the different local traditions the cookies may vary a little. This cookie is not on any traditional christmas list, but it is on mine.

I have combined a cookie recipe with a the familys favorite gingersnap cookies.

Ingredients for about 36 large cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

500 g regular salted butter
2.5 dl granulated sugar
2.5 dl brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
