    1 cup Crisco
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1 cup dark molasses
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    3/4 teaspoon cloves
    1 teaspoon salt
    3 eggs
    1/4 cup milk
    2 cups raisins
    5 cups flour, sifted
    5 cups yellow cake crumbs

    Cream together Crisco and sugar. Add molasses and mix well. Add baking powder, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Mix together eggs and milk, then add to the creamed ingredients, mixing well.

    In one bowl, place raisins and 2 cups of flour, mixing well. In another bowl, place cake crumbs and 3 cups of flour, mixing well. Mix the two together.

    Combine the creamed ingredients with the raisins and crumbs. Roll out the resulting dough on a sugared surface. Cut out cookies with a large, round cookie/biscuit cutter. Arrange on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

    Miller & Paine department store use to be in town. These cookies were made and sold in their bakery. You couldn't leave the store without buying a dozen. This recipe makes a big batch for cookie lovers and pot luck dinners. Enjoy!

    The crooks are leaving have left office, unprosecuted and scot-free.
