Neal was all hat and no cattle. He used to tell people about his sailing adventures in the islands, drinking rum and listening to boat music. He claims that one day while sailing, dark rum spilled on his oatmeal raisin cookie and Neal, not being one to waste liquor, or cookies, ate them anyway. Momma said if his lips movin’ he’s lyin’ and it was more like Neal was drinking bourbon on a pontoon boat at the lake and tripped, but either way, a classic was born. Momma read on the WWW that rum soaked raisins are a possible cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis and she wants to be referred to as Doctor because of these cookies. Don't worry, you don't need a prescription for these cookies made with jumbo raisins drunk on dark rum nestled in oatmeal and pecans.
