1/2 Photos of Raisin Puffs
katie in the UP's Note:
I got this recipe out of Paula Deen & Friends book. I'm looking for new recipes to add to my Holiday Trays...this one is a WINNER. Easy to make and delicious! Recipe says 4 Dozen, I got just 3 out of it..(made my balls too big!) Next time I'll make them closer to the size of walnuts like suggested! I can totally see this made with other dried fruit, cherries or cranberries would work great!

Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 2Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
- 3Place raisins and 3/4 cup water in a small sauce pan and simmer gently until the raisins have absorbed most of the water and are soft, about 5 minutes, drain.
- 4Using an electric mixer at low speed, cream the sugar, butter and vanilla until thoroughly combined.
- 5Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
- 6Stir the dry ingredients and raisins into the butter mixture with a spoon.
- 7The batter will be crumbly.
- 8Gather about a tablespoon of dough in your fingers and squeeze so dough holds together.
- 9Roll into walnut-sized ball.
- 10Roll the balls in granulated sugar and place 1 1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
- 11Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned and puffed.
- 12Transfer to wire racks to cool.
- 13Store in airtight tins, as these are quite fragile and have a tendency to fall apart if jostled.
