  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 cup raisins

  • 1/2 cup jarred maraschino cherries, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, cream the shortening, adding the sugar gradually. Add the eggs, fruit and nuts. In a small bowl, dissolve the baking soda in the boiling water; then add this mixture to the shortening mixture.

In a medium size bowl, sift together the flour, allspice, cinnamon and salt. Add the flour mixture to the main bowl and stir.

Drop the batter in rounded teaspoons, about 1 inch apart, on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and place on a wire rack to cool. Serve and enjoy!
