Molasses Raisin Cookies

These old-fashioned mildly sweet cookies are doted with walnuts and raisins. I like then soft right out of the oven and later they crisp up and are perfect for dunking. I have been making these cookies for years and they are always a huge hit with kids and adults like them as well. They are easy to make and I use parchment paper for easy clean up. Let me know if you like them!

Instructions

  1. 1In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and brown sugar. Beat in molasses. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon salt and cloves; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts.
  1. 1Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment lined baking sheets (or greased). Bake at 375 F. for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
