Old Fashioned Raisin Cookies (Acadian)

Print PrintShare with Friends


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.
