Every Valentines my Grandmother made a version of these and cut them into heart shapes. Yummy, easy, and sweet.
1 cup raisins, ground or chopped 1.5 cups brown sugar 1 cup butter, softened 3 eggs 4 tablespoons water 1 teaspoon baking soda 4.5 cups flour (all purpose or gluten free) extra flour for dusting
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix until smooth. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in water until moist but not sticky. Add raisins. Turn out onto floured surface and roll to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into heart shapes (or any shape desired). Place on buttered baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or till lightly browned.
