How to make it

  • Cream shortening and sugar. (I use a small hand mixer.) Add molasses. Add well-beaten egg. (This is when I add the raisins.) Sift the dry ingredients and add alternately with the milk. Stir the mixture just enough to blend all the ingredients. Drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheets (greased). Bake for approximately ten minutes in a 350°F oven. Test for doneness by pressing on the top of a cookie. If no imprint remains, the cookies are done. Yield: about three dozen 2 1/2 inch cookies.
