Mix first 6 ingredients together; cut in shortening like pie crust. Mix egg and milk together and add to flour/shortening mixture along with the raisins. Mix until all the ingredients are moistened and stick together.
Roll on lightly floured board to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-inch round cutter.
Heat griddle until a few drops of water dance on it. Oil lightly. Bake - as cookies brown the tops will get puffy. Turn and brown on other side; don't allow to cook too fast. Good warm.
