My grandson Leo loves raisins, I searched through cookbooks for a recipe that did not call for chocolate, etc. This recipe makes a lot of cookies; I got tired. Leo wanted his cookies, so for that last batch I used a mini cupcake pan, it worked great! Little and easy for his one year old hands to hold. I found the recipe in one of my mom's cookbooks, it was submitted by Delonna Johnson. I changed it a little.

Total Time: 30 minutes or less

Yield: 8 dozen

Source: Sharing Our Best Valley Heights Christian Church

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raisins
  • enough water to barely cover raisins
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 5 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • tsp salt

Steps:

  1. Place water and raisins in a saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat, simmer gently until soft.
  2. Cream shortening.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each egg.
  4. Add the sugar and vanilla.
  5. Sift flour, soda, and salt together. (My sifter did not hold 5 cups of flour, I divided everything in half to sift.)
  6. Add to mixture, plus add the raisins and water juice. Do this while the raisins are still warm.
  7. Make small (about 1 tsp) round balls, place on a greased cookie sheet, flatten with a glass (sprayed with cooking spray) dipped in sugar. I used a sippy cup because it was a lot easier for Grandma hands to hold.

  9. Bake at 400 F for about 8 minutes.
  10. The longer I baked the bigger I made the cookies! Then a light bulb went off, along with a little voice screaming, "cookie". I grabbed my mini muffin pan, sprayed it, put little round balls in it, sprinkled sugar on top and baked at
    400 F for 8 minutes. It worked great!
