Raisin Drop Cookie Recipes
Read More Comments
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

- 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
- Place water and raisins in a saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat, simmer gently until soft.
- Cream shortening.
- Add eggs one at a time, beating after each egg.
- Add the sugar and vanilla.
- Sift flour, soda, and salt together. (My sifter did not hold 5 cups of flour, I divided everything in half to sift.)
- Add to mixture, plus add the raisins and water juice. Do this while the raisins are still warm.
- 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.
- Bake at 400 F for about 8 minutes.
- 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!
