    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This recipe was provided to me by the Red Square Bakery. These cookies are very healthy for you. You can buy flax at most natural foods stores. Grind it fresh in a coffee grinder or a food processor. Don't grind it too fine, because you want some roughage and you don't want to overheat the oils in the flax seed.

      Excellent cookies, and very easy to make. I used slightly less butter, and then added a bit of water to the dough to make it stick together. Next time I will chop the raisins quite small before adding them to the mixture.

      These are fantastic biscuits and a great way of using flaxseed. Very yummy and they don't last long. They do need to sit, cool and harden once out of the oven which is hard to do as they smell so good.
