Chocolate Raisin Cookies

I am looking for a recipe that my Mom used to make back in the 60's & 70's. It was in a Reader's Digest Cookbook from that era, Chocolate Raisin Cookies. This was not like any other recipe I have ever found. This was like a milk chocolate cake like cookie but the top was not soft like a cake but the inside was. Any help would be very appreciated.

I would suggest finding a chocolate drop cookie recipe you like from an old cookie book, like Betty Crocker's Cookie book from that era and then adding raisins. You may be able to tinker with it till you get it tasting the way you remember.

It sounds like a variation of a devil's food cookie.
