Cookies with a Kick

1 cup raisins
1 cup rum
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup shortening

In a small bowl, combine raisins and rum. Let stand for 30 minutes or up to overnight. Use enough rum to completely cover raisins.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Drain the raisins and transfer to another bowl. Add the flour and toss well, thoroughly coating raisins.

In a separate bowl, cream the shortening, and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well. Add the raisin/flour mixture and stir until well blended.

Drop the dough by spoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets and bake 4 to
6 minutes, until lightly colored. Let cool on wire racks.

Makes 3 dozen
