I was going to make chocolate chip cookies when my husband told me to make Raisin Spice Cookies. I wanted my chocolate fix, so I made these cookies:
Chocolate, Raisin, and Nut Cookies
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of shortening (I use 1/2 butter and 1/2 cup shortening)
1 t vanilla
2 Cups Flour
1 t baking soda
1 cup raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup dry milk (this ingredient is optional, it supposedly enhances the flavors)
Cream the shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Then I add the dry ingredients, adding the raisins, chocolate chips, and nuts last.
Drop by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet, bake for 8 -10 minute in a 350 degree oven.
