Maui, Walla Walla and Vidalia -- you'd know sweet onions are special just by their curious names. Sweet onions make up only a small percentage of the crop and cost a little more than other onions, but their flavor makes them worth the extra cost.Nobody knows for sure why some onions grown in specific regions taste as sweet as they do. When grown outside of these regions, these same onions would have the old familiar pungency. Sweet-onion growers in Hawaii, Washington and Georgia believe that special soil and gentle climate make the difference.

"Thanks a bunch if you can come up with this one," wrote Yvonne Jaso of Walla Walla, Wash. "I have been looking for years to find a cookie recipe once featured on the back of a Sun-Maid raisin box. I think they called them raisin griddle cookies. It could have been in the mid-'70s sometime. It's a flat-pressed cookie that looks like a graham cracker with pureed raisins as a filling."Mary Linn of St. Augustine, Fla., responded: "I copied this recipe from the back of the Sun-Maid raisin box in 1974 and I hope it's the one you're looking for. Thanks for a very enjoyable column!"
