This is my first time posting on this particular board, so I thought I'd start off with this... WELSH COOKIES Â½ cup (1 stick) butter 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 cup shortening 6 cups flour 2 cups sugar 6 tsp. baking powder 3 eggs Â½ cup milk 1 tsp. salt 1 cup raisins or currants 1 tsp. nutmeg Mix together butter, shortening, sugar, eggs and milk. Sift together and add dry ingredients. Add raisins and mix. (A heavy-duty mixer comes in handy for this; dough is stiff.) Roll out dough to about 1/8" and cut into circles. Bake as you would pancakes on a 400? electric griddle. Do not overbake; they don't take long to brown and overbaking makes them hard as a rock. Watch carefully and you will see them begin to puff up in about 1 Â½ minutes and that means it's time to turn them. The second side will take only about 1 minute. They will be soft but as they cool on a rack they harden a little. Makes about 6 doz. Hope you enjoy them!
