Welsh Cookies

  • 6 Cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 4 Rounded tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Nutmeg (I usually add a little more)
  • 2 Cups Crisco
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup + 2 Tbsp. Milk
  • 1 Cup Raisins

Pour hot water over raisins. Soak for a few minutes, then drain and dry them.
Beat together eggs and milk. Add raisins and set aside.
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Cut in Crisco.
Add raisin mixture and mix with spoon or fork.
Roll out dough (not all at once) on floured surface till 1/4 inch thick. Cut with round cookie cutter or glass.
Preheat electric griddle or frying pan to 300 to 325 degrees. Fry 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown on each side. Cool on wire rack and sprinkle both sides with powdered (10X) sugar.

We love these because it is a family recipe passed down from generation to generation on my husband’s side of the family since they are Welsh. My kids plan on continuing to pass down the recipe as well.
