Yield: 16 cookies

2 tablespoons Granulated sugar

3. Heat oven to 375F. Have a cookie sheet ready.

4. Unfold phyllo sheets and place on a flat surface. Cover with a clean, slightly damp kitchen towel to prevent drying.

5. Place 1 sheet (keep others covered) on a large cutting board.

Lightly brush sheet with margarine. Repeat with 3 more sheets, stacking each one on the one before. Cut stack into eight 4-inch squares, trimming off excess.

6. Drop 2 level teaspoonfuls raisin mixture in center of each square. Lift edges (all 4 layers) of each square and pinch or twist corners together to enclose filling. Brush outsides lightly with margarine. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining 4 sheets phyllo and remaining 4 sheets phyllo and remaining margarine and raisin filling.

7. Bake 7 to 10 minutes until bundles are golden brown. Remove to a rack to cool. Before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.
