Chocolate Raisin Grincherbread Cookies
It could be said that I love a lot of the recipes I’ve created for this blog. That being the case, I LUST after the hearty, old-fashioned and perfectly harmonized combination of flavors found in this recipe. You. Will. Love. It. If not, you might just be…well…a grinch.
8 oz. cream cheese
Juice & zest of 1 orange
4 eggs
1 c. brown sugar
2. c. flour
½ c. cocoa powder
1 tsp ginger
1 T. cinnamon
2 T. molasses
2 t. baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chunks
½ c. raisins
Cream eggs, orange zest, sugar & cream cheese together in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, then beat until fully mixed. Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are cooked through.

*To turn the cookies into two hearty loaves of Grincherbread, simply add ¾ cup of milk to the recipe. Beat with an electric mixer until a mixed batter forms. Spoon into two large, well-greased & floured loaf pans & sprinkle sparkling sugar atop the batter. Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
