Need raisin biscuit cookie recipe please
"Sunshine" (brand name) used to make a raisin biscuit/cookie, no longer so. My son absolutely loved these. I would like to surprise him and try to replicate them. A raisin paste is sandwiched between 2 very thin layers of a dry, not so sweet biscuit, with an egg wash. Any help? Thanks.
lanirk, do you know that the Vermont Country Store sells these cookies online? They are called Garibaldi Raisin biscuits.
I too loved the Sunshine brand raisin biscuits...
Maida Heatter has a recipe in one of her cookie books. I think I it at home and will try to remember to post tomorrow!
Garibaldis were my childhood favorite.
Reading those recipes, it seems like a very thin shortbread, only with self-raising flour. For North Americans, self-raising flour is approximated by
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt
(picked up from a google search that lead to cooks.com, but my cooking log is at home.)
Other formulations include
2 teaspoons of baking powder
or 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda + 1 1⁄4 teaspoons cream of tartar
to 1 cup of plain (all-purpose) flour.
