“Mom won five dollars for this recipe in 1933 which bought us groceries. Everyone who partakes asks for recipe. We learned of their keeping value only when she sent them to troops in Korea. Before that none of the cookies had lasted long enough for us to know if they kept well! Store separated by wax paper. Substitute dates for the raisins if desired.”

Wonderful cookies! I am not usually fond of soft cookies or raisins, but these are good. I soaked my raisins in just enough wine to cover them, (3/4 cup instead of 2 cups), and soaked them overnight. If you get the raisins that are moist packed just for baking you will need even less wine to soak. I cut the cinnamon back to 2 tsp, but 2 1/2 tsp would have been fine. I used lemon extract and no vanilla. I would make these again.

This recipe tasted strangely like banana bread, but not in a bad way. It was nice enough, but not good enough for me to make again.

Great recipe. I used unsalted butter instead of shortening, and was extremely pleased with the results.
