Soak raisins in apple juice or cider for 4 to 8 hours; drain, discarding juice, and set raisins aside.
Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a fork or pastry bender until shortening is the size of peas. Add milk, stirring with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened (dough will resemble cottage cheese and be sticky.) Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface; add raisins. Knead lightly 10 to 12 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter. Bake at 475 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with unsalted Butter.
Yields 2 dozen.

  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
