Hermits: The Recipe

Hands down this is Tobey's favorite cookie ever. They must be an acquired taste because I am not so much of a fan. No chocolate here folks, the hermit is raisins, nuts and molasses. Some how I find that to be a cookie sacrilege of sorts. But he likes 'em anyways.


3 ½ cups A.P. Flour
1 tsp. baking powder & soda
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 eggs
¼ tsp. salt and cloves
2 cups chopped walnuts
1 cup shortening
1 ¾ cup brown sugar
1 cup molasses
2 cups raisins

Sift dry ingredients together in separate bowl, set aside. In medium bowl cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and then molasses. Slowly add in dry, sifted ingredients. Fold in nuts and raisins. Drop by rounded teaspoons on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.



They are very yummy.
