  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • 1 cup raisins

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

  3. Drop cookie dough by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, cookies should be light brown around the edges.
