Raisin Spice Cookies
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of shortening (I use 1/2 butter and 1/2 cup shortening)
2 cups of raisins
2 T milk
1 1/2 t cinnimon
1/2 t cloves
1 t nutmeg
1 t baking soda
So for the flour, my mother-in-law write down:
1 1/2 batches = 4 Cups flour
So I use about 2 3/4 cup flour for a single batch.
And she writes down no other directions, which is o.k. I know how to make cookies :)
So I cream the shortening, sugar, eggs, and milk. Then I add the dry ingredients, adding the raisins last.
Drop by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet, bake for 8 -10 minute in a 350 degree oven.
