 Ingredients List

  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 cups sugar divided
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


Combine raisins and water in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Simmer until water is almost completely reduced, about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla, beating until combined.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.

Gradually add dry ingredients to the mixing bowl, beating until combined.

Stir in raisins.

Place remaining 1/2 c. sugar in a small bowl.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls, and roll in the sugar, thoroughly coating.

Arrange dough balls two inches apart on parchment paper or silicone mat-lined baking sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until edges are golden, and centers appear set.

Remove from heat, and allow to cool on cookie sheets for 2-3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
