  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets. In a small shallow dish, stir together the cinnamon and white sugar; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar and nutmeg. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or your fingers, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg, and mix into a stiff dough. It may take a minute or two for the dough to come together. Mix in raisins. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned just around the edges. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks to cool.

Excellent recipe! I used less raisins and added some almonds, sliced. As the almonds made the dough a bit dry I then added about 2 tbsp of maple syrup. It turned out to be one of the best coo...

My husband loves these. I made it for the first time today and I added the all spice and vanilla extract to it. They were perfect. So quick and easy to make.

I followed this recipe exactly as directed and they were great. My kids loved them. Next time, I will add a little vanilla as the other reviewers did. This is a keeper!

I wanted to bake something and looked at what was on hand...raisins! These are way better than I expected...I'll make them again. Thanks!
