These are my grandmother's Christmas cookies. These look as good as they taste. Once cookies have cooled ice with a simple confectioners sugar icing.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening, add the buttermilk, and mix until creamy. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, cloves and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Then stir in the soaked raisins and pecans. By the time you are this far along, you may find it easier to mix with your hands.
  3. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place them on the cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Watch carefully as the bottoms tend to burn easily.

Excellent as is - without the icing. These bake up with a soft inside. I included the chopped pecans, but sans the raisins. They were a big hit.

Disappointing. The cookies turned out dry and tough and bland; I couldn't taste the spice, even though I added an extra tablespoon halfway through, and the flour overwhelmed the trace sweetness. I did substitute yoghurt for the buttermilk, but I don't think that this is the problem. :(
