While many Acadians settled into what is now Lousiana, others settled into parts of Canada influencing the cuilinary traditions of that nation. This 100 year old recipe is a family fovorite from the kitchen of Darlene Dorey and found on the Internet. I love raisn cookies and this one truely looks a winner. The original posting did not offer cooking times or yield, but I'm estimating for this untried recipe based on baking experience. Once tested, I will modify.
