Butter and/or shortening
Raisins (see Note)
Bar method. Egg wash strips with whole egg or egg whites. Note: This is a soft, sticky dough, difficult to handle. Do not worry if the units are not perfectly shaped. A homemade look is appropriate for this cookie.
Note: If the raisins are hard and dry, soak them in hot water until soft, then drain them and dry them well before adding them to the cookie batter.
