We got to talking about raisins the other day.
I don't really like them in cookies. Emma does. Katie doesn't. Patrick doesn't.
But for some strange reason, I have a recipe for Raisin Puff cookies...
and I really like them, so does Emma.
Well it's not that strange. Many years ago my quilting friend Janet served them at our weekly quilting 'bee'. I copied the recipe and the rest is history.
Emma and I made them on Saturday.
Emma makes great cookies. I let her lead the way.
Here is the recipe;
Janet's Raisin Puffs
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups raisins
3 1/2 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1 t. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1) In a sauce pan, boil water. Add raisins, boil until the water is gone.
Combine flour, soda and 1/2 t. salt in large bowl.
2) Beat together sugar and butter until combined in a large bowl.
Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
Beat until blended. Stir in raisins.
3) Combine the 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon in a bowl.
Shape dough into 1" balls. Roll in cinnamon-sugar.
Place 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
4) Bake 375º for 8 minutes.
Don't over cook.
Seems short. But it's correct.
If you like raisins (or don't) you may just love these cookies....
