Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 cookie! I added a teaspoon of vanilla and instead of the 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg I used 1 1/2 teaspoons allspice. That gave a slightly spicy taste. Also I added about a 1/2 cup more raisins. Next time I will double the recipe-they went so fast! My 2 year old loved them! Read More

These cookies are a cross between a snickerdoodle and a sandie. I love how thick and dense they come out. I did half the batch with the raisins for my daughter and the other half with dried cranberries and chopped pecans for me. And then I proceeded to eat five of them! This is a keeper. Read More

I made this recipe this afternoon for the first time. Very good. I like others added vanilla and a bit of allspice. My husband always tells me that I'm always making cookies with chocolate in them thus my search led me to this chocolate free recipe. Read More

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 cookies I've ever tasted. Read More

Not what I expected but still good. I used 1 C wheat flour and 1 C white. These cookies are very dense and very sweet. The first one I wasn't too sure about but the more I ate the more I liked them! Read More
