Then add the wet and dry ingredients together and stir until combined.

This is a recipe my mom makes every year around the holidays, one of the family favorites. Although they are great anytime if you love spice cookies. They are a spice cookie and they are the best, softest and most moist cookie ever! I wish I had some pictures for you on this one but I have to work this morning so no time for baking yet again today sorry. I do want to share this recipe though… I hope you enjoy!

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup chopped nuts ( we use walnuts )

Directions:

Cream the shortening, sugar and eggs. Dissolve the soda in a teaspoon of water and add to creamed mixture. Then add flour, salt and spices to the creamed mixture and mix well. Add your raisins and nuts last and mix them in. You may omit the raisins and nuts if you like.

Drop about a tablespoon full for each cookie on greased cookie sheets or on parchment paper (If I remember correctly it makes about 2 dozen depending on how large you make them we like big fat cookies LoL.)
