Children's Delight Cookies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This was a favorite of my 6 children. It is easy to make and if the batch is too large, the recipe is easily cut in half.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Boil water and raisins together for 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Cream sugar, shortening, eggs and vanilla until light. Pour in the warm raisin mixture, combining well. Stir in dry ingredients that have been combined and blend well.
  • Drop by tablespoonful on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes.
