Golden Raisin Cookies


This recipe was given to me by a good friend. They are a nice mild cookie that keeps well.


  • 1 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 (15 ounce) package golden raisins (2 1/2 cups)


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add lemon juice and eggs.
  3. Combine dry ingredients and gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in raisins.
  4. Roll into 1-inch balls (I use a scoop). Place on greased baking sheets and flatten with a floured fork.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
