    Elly in Canada's Note:

    Tasty hermits made yummy with chopped apple, dried apricots or raisins. This batter is quite thick and I spread the cookies slightly after dropping on the baking sheet. A tiny old clipping from a newspaper posted for safe keeping, My kids loved these little hermit cookies!

      Oh, these taste like my childhood! I had forgotten how good spiced cookies are; and with apples and raisins, so yum. The cloves makes my taste buds take notice. I made them as written except for the one cup of apple turned into one apple, chopped. It was a big one!
      Had my neighbour over for coffee this afternoon and these cookies hit the spot with her too, and now she has the recipe. Thanks Elly!

      I was a little unsure about that much cloves & nutmeg but it was very good. I think I would have given it 5 stars if the salt was less. I will be making this again but with 1/2 the salt. Thanks for posting, it's a keeper!
