Colonial seaports received plentiful supplies of raisins, which were used in cooking and as treats for children. This recipe, from the Oldport Committee of the Newport (Rhode Island) Historical Society, is made as part of the city's extensive Christmas celebration.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Stir this bit by bit into creamed mixture and beat well. Fold in raisins. Form by heaping tablespoonfuls and drop 3 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
