Why I Love This Recipe

My Aunt Carol makes these every holiday from the recipe my Grandma Claudia gave to her. My grandmother's recipe is attributed to Mrs. Nellie V. Reeves.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup Crisco
2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
3 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/4 cup milk
1 cup raisins
1 cup candied fruit mix


Cream shortening, sugar and eggs together. (Add the eggs one at a time.)

Mix flour and dry ingredients together.

Add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture alternately with milk.

Add fruit mix and raisins and blend well.

Drop onto greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.
