Serve these delicious spicy cookies to Santa Claus with a big glass of milk. He might not be able to get back up the chimney, but wouldn't he be a jolly old fellow to have around.

1 cup shortening
1 3/4 cup brown sugar-packed
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. mace
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
2 3/4 cups of plain sifted flour
1 tsp. soda
2 Tbsp. milk
2 cups seedless raisins
1 cup chopped pecans

Combine first 9 ingredients in mixing bowl and beat well. Sift flour and soda together, add half of it to shortening mixture and blend well. Add milk, then remaining flour. Add raisins and nuts.
Measure out rounded tablespoons of dough on a baking sheet. Bake in 375 degree preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes until just starting to turn golden around the edges.
About 4 dozen cookies.
