Nana's Welsh Griddle Cookies

Here's the recipe for the apparently famous family traditional recipe of Welsh Griddle cookies. The word is that our Great Grandmother used to make these for our Grandmother and our Mother. Of course...none of US had ever had them until they were made for Meka. How did this skip a generation? And here we thought we were loved.

6 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
4 tsp. of nutmeg

Mix ingredients together & then blend in 2 cups of shortening (Crisco); blend like a pie (w/ either a pastry cutter or fork). Beat 3 eggs together add 1/2 cup of milk & 1 tsp. vanilla and blend well w/ beater. Soak 2 1/2 cups of seedless raisins for 1 minute, drain raisins & mix them with a little bit of flour. Mix all together and roll out on well floured surface to ~ 1/4in. thick. Use cookie cutter or glass rim to cut.

Bake 350 degrees in a skillet until light brown (cook like a pancake turning only once).

NOTE: Recipe can be halved OR half of the batter can be frozen. 6 cups of flour makes a LOT of cookies.
