My daughter has a recipe she calls Treasure Cookies. It's a Raisin Spice from the old McCall's Cookie Recipes book. We omit the raisins and use candied peel instead. The treasures are the bits of peel!

Treasure Cookies

3 cups flour
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
3 eggs (3 teaspoons baking powder + 4 1/2 tablespoons water + 4 1/2 tablespoons oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups candied peel

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Set this aside.
Cream together the shortening and the brown sugar. Add the water, oil and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Combine the candied peel with the flour mixture so that all of the peel is separated and coated with flour.
Stir this into the shortening, sugar mixture until well combined.
Drop rounded a teaspoonful 2 inches apart onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
The flavor improves the next day so bake at least a day before serving, if you can...don't worry too much though, because they're just cookies! :)

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees
