Preheat oven to 275*

Combine raisins with water in a food processor and blend on high for about 1 minute or until smooth.

Roll 3 tbsp portions of the dough into a ball in your hands and press to 1/2" flat or so on an ungreased or lined with parchment paper cookie sheet.

Bake for 18- 20 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or the cookies will not be chewy.
