Comments : 1 Posted in : Cookies, Desserts on by : Beryl Tags: ,

Serves: 6

Ingredients:
3 each eggs
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
2 cups flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups raisins, seedless, chopped
2 Tablespoons candied citron (optional), chopped
1 cup walnuts, chopped
½ cup confectioner’s sugar, for dusting

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 400°

Beat the egg whites and the yolks separately and then together. Add the remaining ingredients except the confectioner’s sugar. Dough will be stiff, if too stiff, add a little red wine or milk.

Drop by spoonful on buttered cookie sheets, about two inches apart. Bake for 7 – 9 minutes.

While still hot, roll cookies in confectioner’s sugar.

Notes:
Pecans can be substituted for the walnuts if you don’t like walnuts.

These taste better when they have aged for a few days, “the older the better.”

    When Mom first gave me a taste of these cookies, I loved them! I was so surprised when she told me what was in them! I would never have tried this recipe if she hadn’t given me a taste first. They are terrific!!! I said they take 2 hours to make because I am slow in the mixing process and the rolling in sugar process. Most people would probably make them much faster.
