Grandma Snarr's Raisin Nut Cookies
I have been searching for this recipe, and was beginning to think I'd lost it, but my cleaning lady was helping me clean up the basement last week, and she found my mother's recipe box.
This cookie is soft and chewy, and keeps very well.
Raisin Nut Cookies
2 cups raisins
1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3-1/2 cups flour
3 eggs or 5 egg yolks
nuts (she used pecans or English Walnuts)
Cover the raisins with water in small saucepan and simmer until plump, then drain. Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, then add dry ingredients and mix well. Add raisins and nuts.
Drop by spoonfuls on sprayed baking sheet and bake in 350 oven until set and lightly browned.
You may vary the recipe by using 2 cups of oats and only 1-1/2 cup flour.
