I have a similar recipe I got 40 years ago. Never seen one like it before now. Mine called for grinding 2 orange rinds and the raisins and saving half to make a powdered sugar glaze/frosting with orange juice. Yummy!

About

This is an old recipe from my MIL's recipe box. I have no other history on it. It's super cool, flavored with the orange and raisins being ground together. Enjoy!
