Combine all ingredients except Pâté Sucre; stir well.

Roll Pâté Sucre to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut into 4-inch squares. Place 1 teaspoon raisin mixture in center of each square. Moisten edges with water, and fold pastry in half to form a triangle. Press edges together with a fork to seal.
