Poor Man's Cookies

These may not be healthy but they sure are great once in awhile. It's an old recipe from my grand mother.

Let boil - 1 cup of raisins, 2 cups of water until 1 cup of liquid is left.

Melt 1/2 cup of shortening in the above mixture, then stir in 1 tsp. of baking soda until it foams.

Cream 1 cup of sugar and 1 egg and add raisin mixture.

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine two mixtures and spread on cookie sheet. Bake at 300-325 for 20 minutes. Frost (if desired) and cut. 1/2 or cup chopped nuts may be added, if desired.
