Before preparing the cookie dough I boiled some raisins for 5 minutes in water.  I allowed them to cool slightly.

This raisin mixture could be prepared well ahead of time and already be cooled when you want to start making the cookie dough.

For the cookie dough I dumped some shortening, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla into a large mixing bowl.  

I used an electric hand mixer to blend these ingredients together until they were light and creamy.

Now I added in the cooled raisin mixture that I had prepared earlier.

Then I stirred in the cooled raisin mixture with a large wooden spoon.

Next I measured in the Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, salt, ground cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and cloves.

Using the wooden spoon I stirred the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until they were thoroughly combined.

I used a two tablespoon scoop to drop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

These are large cookies.  They can be made smaller and just adjust the baking time.

Then I placed the baking sheet in a preheated 350F oven for 12-14 minutes until they were golden brown around the bottom edges.

After removing them from the oven I allowed them to cool slightly on the baking pan.

Then I transferred them to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Jumbo Raisin cookies are a soft cookie that make a great snack any time but really hits the spot on cooler days with its hint of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
