Raisin Walnut Cookies

It is getting a little chilly now, most of us are looking to start up the oven to warm the house and look forward to the smell of fresh baked cookies in the oven.

Its my favorite time of the year, but I’m always making cookies year round. They are quick little bites of heaven that are so easy to make. 

These little guys are oh my goodness heaven. Plump juicy raisins, walnuts and cinnamon. You will love them so much you will probably not want to share. 


  • Bowl for mixing and wooden spoon for mixing (Do not use an electric mixer, cookies will not be the right consistency)
  • 2 large baking sheets
  • Small spoon
  • Spatula


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of vanilla
  • 2 sticks of butter soften
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts chopped
  • 3/4 cup of raisins
  • 1 tablespoon of water

Preheat oven to 350°

Place your butter in your mixing bowl and mush it around a bit with your spoon. Now add your egg, sugar, vanilla and salt.

Stir till well combined. 

Now add your flour and cinnamon. Stir till well combined. If your dough feels a little dry add your water, continue to stir till it is the correct consistency.

Add your walnuts and gently fold. Next add your raisins and fold in as well.

On your ungreased baking sheet place about 1 inch balls of dough, try to keep a 1 inch seperation from each. 

Place in your preheated oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Bake till golden brown. 

Makes about 36 cookies.
