In a large bowl, beat shortening with an electric mixer on high speed until creamy. Gradually beat in sugar until fluffy. Add egg; beat until blended. Reduce mixer to medium speed; beat in molasses and set aside. Sift flour, baking soda, salt and spices; gradually add to shortening mixture. Fold in raisins. Turn dough out onto a sheet of aluminum foil. Wrap and refrigerate for one to 2 hours. Form into one-inch balls and roll in sugar; place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, until tops of cookies are crackled. Let stand for 2 minutes before removing cookies from baking sheets.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."
"Your DVO cookbook software saves me time and money!"
"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
