    Jumbo Raisin Cookies

    Source of Recipe

    From my mom Shirley

    List of Ingredients

    2 cups raisins
    1 cup water
    4 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 cup butter or shortening (for better flavor use 1/2 cup each)
    1 3/4 cups sugar
    2 eggs -- slightly beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 cup nuts -- chopped

    Bring raisins and water to a boil. Boil until raisins are plump, about 3
    minutes. Set aside to cool. (Do not drain.) Sift flour with baking
    powder, soda, salt and spices. Cream butter. Gradually blend in sugar,
    creaming well after each addition. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Stir
    in the raisins and any remaining water. Gradually add the flour mixture,
    blending thoroughly after each addition. Stir in the nuts. Drop by
    tablespoonfuls about 2-inches apart on greased cookie sheets.

    Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen

    My mother, Shirley, used to make these as a special treat. They
    are good!
