1/2  cup  Butter, softened
1  cup  Brown sugar (packed)
1    Egg, beaten
1/4  cup  Sour cream
1/4  cup  Milk
2  cups  All-purpose flour
2  teaspoons  Baking powder
1  pinch  Salt
1  teaspoon  Ground cinnamon
1/4  teaspoon  Ground cloves
1  cup  Raisins
3/4  cup  Powdered sugar, sifted
2  tablespoons  Half and half
3  drops  Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Grease several baking sheets with butter and dust with flour. In a large bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until very creamy. Beat in egg, sour cream and milk. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and allspice into bowl; mix well. Stir in raisins. Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of mixture onto prepared baking sheets, spacing well apart. Using a fork dipped in cold water, flatten each teaspoonful slightly. Bake about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, prepare glaze. In a small bowl, beat together powdered sugar, half and half and vanilla until smooth. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, brush a thin layer of glaze over each one. Place on a wire rack to cool. Source: "The Book of Cookies" by Pat Alburey, HP Books.
