This recipe was handed down from my grandmother on my mother’s side.  I think she may have gotten these from her italian neighbors as they do not appear to be Polish in origin.  These cookies are a must have for us at Christmas.  They make great Christmas gifts and work beautifully when shipping as they are long lasting cookies that can travel well.

This recipe was handed down from my grandmother on my mother's side. I think she may have gotten these from her italian neighbors as they do not appear to be Polish in origin.

Ingredients

  • 1  tablespoon Butter
  • 1 1/2  cup Sugar
  • 3  Eggs (medium)
  • 3  cups Flour
  • 1  teaspoon Cinnamon (ground)
  • 1  teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1  tablespoon Water
  • 1/2  cup Raisins
  • 1/2  cup English Walnuts (chopped)

Note

These will keep indefinitely but will harden in about 3 days to be a good dunking cookie. Very similar to biscotti but way more yummy.
