From a "clip-out" recipe that I found many years ago. The original recipe calls for raisins but I like using dried cranberries. These have a nice soft texture.

Such a tasty, cake-like cookie. They're not sweet enough for my sugar addicted children, so I drizzled them with a powdered sugar/butter/lemon juice glaze. Evenso, they still taste healthy!

I used margarine instead of butter. I omitted the ginger and nutmeg but added more cinnamon. I loved them. They bake in the middle of oven for 20 minutes. Thanks Melissa :) Made for 123 hit wonders

These are good but I think they must need more salt as they seem kind-of lacking in flavor, surprising for the amount of spices... could just be my tastebuds today though! I used my cookie scoop (a #60 size) and got 31 cookies. Baked on parchment instead of greasing the pan. The batter is very sticky and thick - I was surprised to find it didn't spread very much so the cookies are very round :) They were very easy so I will be trying them again, but using more salt to try to bring out the flavors more. Thanks for posting!
