OMG! Make these today! They were so good and moist. I didn't have a full cup of margarine so I substituted 1/2 Cup of shortening. My family doesn't like nuts or raisins so I left them out. I think they would be outstanding with pecans or walnuts in them. My daughter couldn't stop raving about how good they were.
