  • ½ tsp bitters
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup raisins seedless
  • 2 cups finely grated coconut


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg, bitters and vanilla; beat well.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add coconut and raisins.

Soak the raisins before you add it to the dough.
