    Possum Kingdom Lake Cookbook

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 cup butter or margarine -- softened
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 Egg yolk
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 cup flour
    3 tablespoons unsweeten cocoa powder
    1/2 cup natural raisins

    Cream butter and sugar. Beat in yolk and salt.

    Mix in flour and cocoa just to blend thoroughly.

    Mix in raisins to distribute evenly.

    On lightly floured surface, roll into a 12" long.

    Wrap securely and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 1 week.

    With sharp knife, cut 1/3" thick slices, and place 1" apart on baking sheets.

    Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 15 to 20 minutes until cookies are set and bottoms are lightly browned.

    Remove to racks to cool completely.

    Decorate as desired with melted semi-sweet or white chocolate, and top with colored sprinkles, raisins, nuts, or candied fruit pieces.

    Allow to set before storing in layers between sheets of waxed paper in airtight container.
