Aunt Sally used to come and babysit my sister and me when we were little and my mother had to work. She and her husband rented space at an auction and we often went to explore all of the fun things they had for sale. One time Uncle Al put me up on the table and offered me up for auction! Everyone there thought it was very funny.


 2 cups flour 

1/2 lb. butter

2 tablespoons cinnamon 

6 tablespoons sugar 

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 

1/2 cup raisins, chopped 

Combine flour, butter and cream cheese and wrap in wax paper. Leave in refrigerator overnight.
