Make it Monday

Since my baby is teething I wasn't able to post this yesterday. So, yesterday I made HERMITS. Yes, I know the name is funny but I asked Adrian what he wanted me to make and he chose Hermits. It makes about 30. Here is the recipe. 3/4 cup flour 1 1/2 tsps baking powder 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg 1/4 tsp ground cloves 1/4 tsp ground allspice 1 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup butter at room temp 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 1/2 cup molasses 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 1-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom and sides of a 13x8 inch pan with wax paper and grease. 2-Sift together the flour, baking powder and spices. 3-Place the raisins in another bowl and toss with a few TBS of the flour mixture. 4-With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, then the molasses. Stir in the flour mixture, raisins, and walnuts. 5-Spread evenly in the pan. Bake until just set, 15-18 minutes. Let cool in the pan before cutting into bars. Done. They weren't too bad. It really does help to place wax paper down before the mixture. So much easier. Till next time...
