We make these every year, the recipe we have is on an index card, and is a copy of the original recipe from my mother-in-law,possibly from Woman's Day magazine, 1965???, the ingredients are almost the same, except that margarine is used instead of butter above(how 60's is that?), but the procedure is written differently, here it is verbatim:
"Cream margarine; gradually beat in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour with soda and spices; add to butter mixture. Soak raisins in bourbon at least 1 hour to plump; then add to butter mixture along with nuts and fruit. Drop from teaspoon on buttered cookie sheets. Bake in moderate oven (325 degrees F) about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container. Can be frozen. Makes 120.
Note: these cookies are especially good with holiday eggnogs."
and yes, it says eggnogs, plural. We always use butter instead of the margarine and they come out great.
