Raisin paste is always a good match for thinner dough, thumbprint cookies or cinnamon rolls if the dough is thinly rolled and its more of a delicate pastry. The raisin paste is great for Filo, buttery, croissant Doughs.
- 1 Cup Raisins
- 1/4 to 2/3 cup Water (enough to cover raisins)
- 1/2 stick Butter
- 2 tablespoons Sugar
- 2 tablespoons Cinnamon
- Add the Raisins and water into the saucepan and place on stove
- Bring to a boil and turn down fire.
- Simmer for 10 minutes
- Remove from heat and add the butter, cinnamon and sugar.
- Stir until the sugar dissolves
- Use you spatula to remove everything and place into the food processor.
- Make sure it processes to a smooth texture.
- Take your spatula and remove all the paste into a container with a lid.
- Set in refrigerator until ready to use.
Its better to make the paste a day ahead or even a few days. Remove from refrigerator at least 2 hours prior to use. Must be at room temperature so it spreads evenly like butter. This is awesome on toast in the morning.
