Also Called: Raisin Cookies

Waiting for the Speculatius to chill is very trying for the fifty anxious fingers in our house. While we are waiting, we mix up a batch of another raisin cookie which we can taste right now. These are drop cookies, and even a tiny child can drop bits of dough on a greased cookie sheet. What if a few miss the pan? What if they are all sizes, from dibs to dabs? The crumbs are the important things after all — the crumbs and enough whole ones to fill our stockings.

DIRECTIONS

Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs. Add sour milk alternately with sifted dry ingredients. Stir in walnuts and raisins. Drop spoonfuls of batter on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a moderate oven (375°) for about 15 minutes.

* To sour milk, combine 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar with enough milk to fill a 1 cup measure. Let it stand 5 minutes.)
