The following recipe is for Hermits, which are a type of spiced cookie bar. This recipe has been passed down in my family for generations. *Just like Chocolate Chip Cookies these should be removed from the oven before they are solid. They should have a LIGHT brow color. Otherwise they get as hard as rocks. If you do over bake them try zapping them in the microware for 15 seconds or so before eating.
- Stir together dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another large bowl cream margarine and sugar, add corn syrup, water and egg. Gradually beat dry ingredients into wet ingredients stir in raisins. Spread in a greased and floured 13x9 pan. Bake at 375 until done- about 25 - 35 minutes. Cool and cut in squares. Store in a tight box or tin.
