Chocolate Covered Raisin Cookies

*Chocolate Covered Raisin Cookies*
Makes about 36

Kind of like a chocolate chip cookie, but with chocolate covered raisins in them, as well as chocolate chips.  Very, very good!  (if you like raisins!)

4 ounces butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate covered raisins
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 190*C/375*F/ gas mark 5.  Line a couple of baking sheets with some parchment paper.  Set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy.  Beat in the egg and vanilla.  Whisk together the flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Stir this into the creamed mixture. Stir in the chocolate covered raisins and the chocolate chips.  Using your hands, shape the dough into walnut sized balls.  Place on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between each.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned on top.  Allow to rest on baking sheets for about 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
