This is an updated old family recipe. Always a favorite at Christmas.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease baking sheets or spray with cooking oil.
Beat egg and brown sugar until creamy. Add melted butter and Greek yogurt. When combined well, add the spices, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix well.
Add the flour in segments, beating with each submission. The dough gets thick, so you may need to switch to incorporating the flour with a spoon. Add raisins, thoroughly mixing.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, about an inch apart. These cookies don't spread, but give them room to breathe. Bake 12 minutes. Remove to cool on wire rack or waxed paper.
The original recipe called for sour milk. The recipe worked well with non-fat Greek Yogurt. I would imagine sour cream would work as well.
