Description

These cookies smell, taste and are Christmas to me! It just isn't Christmas without them! I grew up eating them during the holidays and now cherish the time making them with my sons!

Time to start baking for Christmas!! This is my favorite Christmas cookie and always the first one I bake. My youngest son Ronny and I made these this past weekend. MMMMM So yummy!! The smell while baking reminds me of my childhood, and Christmas time. Mom and Grandma always had these on the cookie tray.

Directions/Steps
  1. Cream shortening and sugar.
  2. Add eggs and milk and vanilla a little at a time.
  3. Add dry ingredients and spices. Mix well.
  4. Add nuts, chips, and raisins and mix.
  5. Roll the dough into balls, a little smaller than a golf ball. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Cool and glaze. I just use powdered sugar, a little water and a little milk for the glaze and just dunk the cookies in the glaze and let dry on rack.

I made these and they were so good I had to make another batch because everyone gobbled them up as fast as I baked and frosted them. This is a must in my collection from now on...I loved them

Great recipe! I remember my mother coming home from showers and parties with a dish of cookies when i was a child, and these cookies were always among the assortment. They were easy to make and baked up beautifully. Thanks!
