HERMITS my Mom's Christmas Cookie Recipe!

These are a great cookie for storing, nicely spiced & have a great nutty & yet chewy texture! 

1 Cup Butter Softened
2 Cups Brown Sugar ( I used light but I like Dark Brown Sugar in these & switch it up!)
3 Eggs
3 & 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda Dissolved in 1/2 Cup Hot Water or Coffee
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Allspice
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Cups Finely Chopped Raisin ( I did mine if the Food Processor)
1 Cup Finely Chopped Walnuts ( I use Pecans because I am allergic to Walnuts!)
Cream Butter add brown sugar & beat again. Add eggs, vanilla & beat. Now add your baking soda liquid & beat again. Stir all the dry ingredients together well & the gradually beat those into your batter. Chill dough. When ready to bake preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drop by Tablespoonfuls onto your cookie sheets spaced far apart, these will spread out & flatten, I put about 9 on a sheet! Bake one sheet at a time for about 9 minutes, cookies will look dark, but not burnt! That is what you want! Let cookies rest on your baking sheet for about 1 minutes & then remove to cool the cookies! SO YUMMY! Makes about 5 dozen! & no I have no idea why these are called Hermits but they are HAPPY HERMITS!
