I was making carrot bread the other day and forgot to put the raisins in the bread. (A travesty I know!) However, on the brighter side of things, I had plenty of raisins left to make my butter cookies. They should be light, delicately crisp on the outside and tender in the middle. Buttery and lightly sweet! One of my favorite little snacks. A very simple pleasure, and about 60 calories per cookie.
ENJOY!
