BLACK WALNUT COOKIES
These are one of my favorite cookies. My Daddy loved these cookies he says they are the only cookies that are better tasting than a coconut macaroons. I want to make these cookies and give your culinary opinion.
1 cup butter flavored shortening, 1 ½ cups light brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup whole milk, 1 3/4 cup cake flour, sifted 3 times, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground mace, 3 cups quick rolled oats, 1 cup raisins, ¾ cup black walnuts, chopped.
Pour the milk into a cup, add the raisins allow them to soak. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, cream the shortening and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Beat after each egg until until light and fluffy. Stir in milk along with the raisins. Sift together dry ingredients till well mixed. Stir in oats, and nuts. Scoop up a tablespoon of the cookie mix, drop from tablespoon onto the lightly gresed cookie sheet 2” apart. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes. Cool slightly; remove from pan.
Don’t forget, I am expecting ya’ll to tell me which cookie you like the best Black Walnut or Coconut Macaroon.
